Throughout California there is a very strong CAGBN presence, and we believe in the power of small measures adding up to impactful outcomes – which is why SBC has persistently pursued this endeavor. Now that the Sierra is emerging stronger out of the pandemic, we are finally able to offer the Truckee- North Lake Tahoe region a revamped Sierra Green Business program!
What does this mean for Truckee and North Lake Tahoe? As you can imagine, sustainability is already a core value of many local businesses, so it may be no surprise that we already have a very eager group of business owners who have started their audit process; from yoga studios, breweries, contractors, and even hotels! Our CAGBN team here at SBC will spend the remainder of the year working with our existing pool of businesses as well as recruiting new ones. In addition to technical assistance to become a certified Green Business, organizations will also have the opportunity to become clients of the Sierra SBDC, furthering access to vital resources. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but visitors and local residents can expect to see local shop windows adorned with the CAGBN member decal as early as June 2022.
