The Green Business Tax Advisory Board, established by the Prince George’s County Council under Council Resolution CR-28-2011, is a 7 member board charged with reviewing and evaluating green business opportunities and recommending appropriate policies and regulations to implement a green business tax credit program in Prince George’s County.
Prince George’s County Council Member Eric Olson (D) - District 3, who proposed the legislation establishing the Green Business Tax Advisory Board, says the group was established to help identify ways the county can attract “green” businesses and advise regarding the implementation of the county’s green business tax credit program.
“It is important to provide incentives and opportunities for ‘green’ businesses, and businesses that want to go ‘green,’ to invest in Prince George’s County. Environmentally responsible business practices will grow our economy and create more sustainable communities so I look forward to the report and recommendations from the Advisory Board.”
The Advisory Board is composed of:
- 1 representative of the Prince George’s County business community
- 4 citizens of the county who are affiliated with a nonprofit environmental organization in Maryland
- The Chair of the Board from among the 7 appointed members
- The Council Chair or the Chair’s representative
- The County Executive or the County Executive’s representative
Maryland State Delegate Aisha Braveboy (District 25) and former State Senator David C. Harrington co-sponsored the State legislative authority to enable the Green Business Tax Credit in Prince George's County.
