The goal of the Orlando Green Business Program is to reach out to our local business community through incentives and education, ensuring pollution prevention and water quality protection of the lakes within the City of Orlando. We feel this goal can be met by forming a partnership between Orlando business owners, residents, and our team at the City of Orlando. Small changes in the way we do business can result in major benefits to our local lakes.
