The Green Business Program provides resources and assistance to businesses wanting to be green, certifies businesses through workshops and trainings, on-site visits & evaluation, and highlights certified businesses so that local consumers can shop green.

Earning a certificate from the GBP of Santa Barbara County means that you have made a commitment to your community and the future success of your business – a commitment to go above and beyond basic environmental requirements.

Help grow your local economy by supporting certified green businesses in Santa Barbara County. These businesses are making an effort to make our community a better place to live. Look for the Green Business decal in the business’ window.

The Green Business Program of Santa Barbara County helps businesses in the cities of Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Buellton, Solvang, Santa Maria, and Guadalupe, as well as the unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara County to operate in an environmentally responsible manner and recognizes them for their efforts.

Our GBP team is made of up of over two dozen partnering agencies and organizations.

We are also part of the California Green Business Program, a state-wide group supporting and promoting green businesses at the state and national levels.
