About the Detroit Green Map

Who We Are

The Detroit Green Map is a collaboration between the Detroit Green Skills Alliance (DGSA) and the US Green Building Council, Detroit Region’s Emerging Professionals subcommittee.

What We Do

We connect the public to local businesses and non-profits that demonstrate a commitment to environmental sustainability and social equality. We believe that increased communication about how to visit and support these organizations can help establish Detroit as a premier example of the Green Economy.



About DGSA

The Detroit Green Skills Alliance (DGSA) was originally designated as a Michigan Skills Alliance supported in part with funding and technical assistance from the State of Michigan. It has now grown into an independent industry alliance formed to serve the needs of businesses, non profits and residents within the Detroit area. DGSA has two purposes:
1) Assisting green economy businesses and organizations expand their capacity
2) Creating job opportunities and career pathways for Detroit residents.
