How Green Is My Town? is a project of Grassroots Environmental Education, a science-based non-profit organization based in New York. 

The criteria for this program was originally based on criteria from the  U. S. Department of Energy, and developed in consultation with government officials, school administrators, business leaders, scientists, physicians, researchers and activists who reviewed our criteria and contributed their time and energy to help make the project a reality.​

Special thanks to our project team: Patti Wood, Lauren Hughes, Matthew Rizzo, Ellen Weininger, Allison Straub, Marissa Gross, and our communications manager, Amanda McCabe.
