More Goleta businesses are going green! The Green Business Program of Santa Barbara County recognized six Goleta businesses and 15 other businesses from the region at its annual Green Business Program Luncheon. This event recognizes businesses that go above and beyond required measures to serve as models of sustainability. Celebrating its fourth year with 45 certified businesses across the County, this multijurisdictional, voluntary incentive program provides support, and recognizes participants that implement good environmental management practices. A business achieving certification can save money by reducing the use of energy, water and other resources.
Participating businesses address waste reduction and recycling, environmentally preferable purchasing, energy efficiency and conservation, water conservation, air pollution prevention and alternative transportation with a checklist tailored to their industry type. The program currently offers certification for a variety of businesses.
