    About the Challenge

    The St. Louis Green Business Challenge, a program of the Missouri Botanical Garden, delivers "Triple-Bottom" Line results (financial, social, and environmental) to businesses of all types and sizes across the St. Louis region. The Challenge supports integration of sustainability measures into the kinds of everyday operational practices common to every business.  Participants identify and adapt the strategies that improve financial performance and engage employees in voluntary measures to reduce environmental impacts.
