Ventura County Green Business Program
What is the Ventura County Green Business?
Ventura County Green Business (VCGB) is a part of the California Green Business Network (CAGBN), whose mission is to assist businesses to operate sustainably as well as profitably. VCGB works with local government agencies to provide assistance to small-to-medium sized businesses who chose to go through the process of becoming Green Certified. To be certified, participants must be in compliance with all environmental regulations and meet program standards for saving water, conserving energy, preventing pollution, and minimizing waste.
For all regular businesses, there will be up to a $500 rebate that qualify for our program. There is also an additional $500 rebate for businesses that are either LGBTQ+ or BIPOC owned!
