The SMSC is committed to being a good steward of the earth, adding environmentally sound infrastructure and amenities to the reservation, and sustaining natural resources. NativeGreen began in December 2017 to enhance the environmental stewardship of the SMSC Gaming Enterprise and the Community as a whole. Its objective is to promote environmental stewardship in a way that is financially sustainable and encourage social engagement surrounding environmental sustainability. The program is a collaborative effort across the SMSC Gaming Enterprise and Tribal Operations. Since its inception, significant strides have been made to reduce environmental impacts, identify operational efficiencies and cost savings, and educate both staff and the general public on these initiatives.
