The California Green Business Network distinguishes and certifies small to medium sized businesses that protect, preserve, and sustain our environment. The program is led by a coalition of cities and counties striving to make our communities healthier and more livable, while also conserving resources and saving money.
Becoming a Certified Green Businesses shows that you care about sustainability and are committed to conserving resources and preventing pollution in both your facility and operations. It means that your business complies with environmental regulations in the areas of waste, energy, water, pollution prevention, and air quality.
Participating businesses receive information on how to conserve energy and water, minimize waste, prevent pollution, and shrink their carbon footprints. Businesses that meet these standards are officially recognized as Certified Green Businesses.
Fremont currently has over 20 certified Green Businesses—you can find the full list of them here. Every year, new and re-certified Green Businesses are honored at a City Council meeting. The Council meetings are broadcast on cable channel 27 and available via a live webcast when the meeting is in session.
