Update: Our Impact 

In August we sent a Green Business Survey to all certified and certifying Green Businesses asking about ways we could improve. One of the takeaways was that you want to hear more about what the California Green Business Network is accomplishing with your collective work to embed sustainability practices at your businesses and organizations.

Above you'll see our calendar year 2019 combined savings! Resource and cost savings from 4,200+ Certified Green Businesses really do add up and combined you made a huge impact last year. As we continue to update our checklists and metrics measures (the checklist questions that have calculations associated with them), we expect to see these savings grow and grow.
