Green Business Academy Workshop Dates for Fall 2017

Are you interested in becoming a certified Green Business?


We will be launching the next Green Business Academy with kickoff workshops on Wednesday, September 20th (Santa Maria) and Thursday, September 21st   (Santa Barbara).  By participating in our Green Business Academy, businesses receive assistance to implement measures in the areas of recycling, environmentally preferable purchasing, water and energy conservation and efficiency, pollution prevention, and ridesharing.  Implementing many of these measures help reduce long-term operating costs while showcasing environmental practices.  As a certified business, you will be listed on both our program’s website as well as the California Green Business Program’s website, which promotes businesses at the state and national level.

The Green Business Academy (GBA) will consist of two workshops and one webinar:
  • Wednesday September 20th – Santa Maria Kickoff Workshop, 3:00 to 5:00 pm (location to be announced)
  • Thursday September 21st – Santa Barbara Kickoff Workshop at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, 3:00 to 5:00 pm
  • Wednesday, October 18th – Webinar for all participating businesses, 3:00 to 5:00 pm
  • Wednesday, November 15th – Wrap-up Workshop for all participating businesses, 3:00-5:00 pm (location to be announced)
