Dayton Regional Green Certification
Techmetals is proud to be a member of the Dayton Regional Green 3 (DRG3) Task Force since it’s inception in 2007.
Montgomery County Commissioners convened a forum of local citizens, government and business leaders to identify strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Montgomery County and the region. Many ideas were generated from the forum and as a result, the Dayton Regional Green 3 Task Force was created.
From the initial formational meetings, the name Dayton Regional Green Task Force and the DRG3 label were developed in an effort to open the Task Force’s efforts to include all of the Dayton Region and not limit it to Montgomery County.
The DRG3 Task Force was divided into Three Workgroups: Residential, Business, and Government. Each Workgroup was charged with Three Focus Areas: Education, Policy and Economic Development.
One of the outcomes of the Business Workgroup was the development of the DRG3 Green Business Certification Program. This program is currently being administered through Montgomery County with assistance from the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce.
