Do I have to do everything on the checklist to become a Green Business?

  • FAQs

No. Businesses must meet minimum standards in each category, and implement additional measures from a selection of options. If certain measures are not applicable or feasible for your facility, you may request an exemption or submit alternate measures that have been implemented for consideration. This flexibility allows businesses to highlight their own unique and creative sustainability initiatives, while maintaining the environmental standards held by all certified businesses in California.
