Who We Are


The Virginia Municipal League's Go Green Virginia initiative (GoGreenVa) recognizes that communities need to take innovative steps to reduce energy usage and promote sustainability. 

Most importantly, member local governments are urged to participate in a friendly competition known as the Green Government Challenge. The "Challenge" is designed to encourage implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that not only reduce carbon emissions, but can save local governments money.


VML is a statewide, nonprofit, nonpartisan association of city, town and county governments established in 1905 to improve and assist local governments through legislative advocacy, research, education and other services.
