Sustainable Business Challenge
The California Green Business Network is pleased to present a Sustainable Business Challenge for businesses across California! All businesses are eligible for at least $500 in incentives as long as they complete their certification by Earth Day 2023. In addition to the $500, newly certified Green Businesses will receive free paid ads, a directory listing, a certificate, and a marketing toolkit upon completion. All successful challengers will be entered into a drawing for a professional photo and/or video shoot as well. Sign up to become a California Green Business here.
San Diego Regional Green Business Network
The San Diego Green Building Council is now home to the San Diego Regional Green Business Network (SDRGBN), and is defining the next chapter of this network. As a first step, SDGBC applied and became the local delivery partner for the California Green Business Network (CAGBN) green business certification program via SDRGBN. We provide the support and direction for local businesses to become certified and then complete the audit of the business' certification application. Sign up to become a California Green Business here.
We are working with local jurisdictions, chambers of commerce and business improvement districts to ensure our local green businesses get the recognition and support they deserve once completing their certification.
