Are you interested in becoming a Green Business?
The Napa County Green Business Program certifies small and medium-sized businesses that operate in an environmentally-responsible manner. By offering technical assistance, the County helps local businesses save money by helping them to conserve energy and water, minimize waste, prevent pollution, and shrink their carbon footprint.
The program also acts as the third-party certifier for the Green Winery Program.
Local governments can make all the difference - learn what yours is doing
Napa County's Climate Action Committee has members from the county and its five cities and towns. The Committee is working to create a countywide Climate Action Plan. This regional approach would include quantifiable and measurable actions to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles, buildings, equipment, and other sources, and would enable the cities and the county to create a unified plan rather than taking a piecemeal approach to climate actions and solutions.
