Black and Green Together

California Green Business Network and Bay Area Organization of Black Owned Businesses are collaborating to introduce Black-owned businesses to the strongest benefits of Green Business certification and assist in the certification process. Green practices, such as reducing waste, conserving energy, and minimizing pollution are easy to set in place and translate to cost savings, customer loyalty and community well being.

Get started with your certification application

Once received, we’ll reach out to set up a short consult. And then you’re on your way!  Learn how to go green!
