The Green Business Program of Santa Barbara County (GBPSBC) is part of the California Green Business Program, a network of local programs operated by counties and cities throughout California.

The GBPSBC provides resources, assistance and evaluations to businesses that want to operate more sustainably in order to conserve resources, generate savings, and gain certification and recognition.

We work with businesses in the cities of Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Buellton, Solvang, Santa Maria and Guadalupe, as well as the unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara County to operate in an environmentally-responsible manner, and recognize them for their efforts. 

Our program requires a small fee that lasts for 3 years until it is time to recertify. Fees are determined based on your sector's square footage.
