Green Business Academy

The Green Business Academy is a workshop designed to give you the tools and training necessary to green your business operations. It will give you a cohort of other businesses to network with and lean on to achieve certification.

The next Academy workshops will be held November 14 & 15, 2o18 and we encourage businesses to participate:

  • Wednesday, November 14, 3:00 to 5:00 pm, at Impact Hub Santa Barbara, 1117 State Street.  A mixer for current and interested businesses will be held immediately following from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  The mixer will feature food and drink from local Green Businesses.
  • Thursday, November 15, 11:30 to 1:30 pm  “Lunch & Learn” at Santa Maria Business Development Center, 731 S. Lincoln Street.  Lunch will be provided from local certified Green Business.

If you cannot attend an Academy workshop, we will share Academy presentations with you to help prepare your business for certification.

The Academy workshops will:

  • Teach you how to use and complete our online checklists.
  • Explain how to meet program requirements in the areas of recycling, purchasing, energy and water conservation and efficiency, pollution prevention, and ridesharing.
  • Allow you to meet other like-minded businesses and learn from each other.

If you are unsure whether or not you will be able to join us on these dates or commit to the overall time requirement, please contact us to discuss possibilities.
