The mission of Charleston's Staff Green Team is to review and improve the City's internal operations from a sustainability perspective and to support the work of the Green Committee.
The Staff Green Team is an internal group of 20+ staff members from various City Departments.The team works to bring more energy-efficient and environmentally-responsible approaches to the City's operational, planning and procurement policies.
The members of the SGT volunteer their time to assist the City in becoming a model of cost-effective, sustainable operations and purchasing. Thus far the SGT has already produced a number of changes within the City that includes but is not limited to:
-Housing and Community Development: First ever LEED-certified multi-unit affordable housing unit in Charleston (Cool Blow St)
- Parks Building Department: Changed out the plumbing fixtures (urinals & commodes) at 823 Meeting St to low flow fixtures (5 gallons per flush down to 1.6 gallons per flush)
-City Hall has installed the first Geo Thermal HV/AC system in the City inventory
