As part of the California Green Business Network (CAGBN), SBC certifies businesses in the Truckee-Tahoe region, helping green-minded businesses access funding to reduce their carbon footprint and strategize how to lessen their impact on our natural environment. CAGBN leads the state and nation in working with small businesses to create a vibrant green economy. Our team at SBC guides local businesses through the certification process, explaining any requirements and connecting businesses with resources to meet certification requirements. 

Most businesses in our region are already meeting many of the certification requirements and we can help them complete the certification process for free. Certification requirements are broken down into measures grouped by impact areas, like energy or transportation. 

Getting certified as a Green Businesses has many benefits:

  • Reduce environmental impacts and fight climate change by saving resources and eliminating waste
  • Implement practices that lead to cost savings on energy, water, materials, and garbage bills
  • Improve marketability as customers increasingly want to patronize businesses that are doing their part for the environment
  • Receive recognition as environmental leaders through CAGBN (get promoted on websites, through online and print advertising, at events and mixers, window decal and program seal on marketing materials, and listed in the CAGBN business registry and on the Green Business app)

Join other certified businesses in Truckee, including RMU, Mountain Lotus Yoga, Lift Coworking, and many more! Click here to get started today.
