Carlsbad Green Business Program
Nineteen Carlsbad businesses that have taken steps to implement environmentally friendly business practices are officially part of the Carlsbad Green Business Program. On April 16, the Carlsbad City Council recognized the newly certified green businesses for demonstrating their commitment to sustainability. The city now has more than 40 businesses certified through the green business network.

The steps to becoming certified vary for each business, but they can include things like switching to paperless recordkeeping, installing solar panels or properly storing and disposing of hazardous waste.

Local businesses are encouraged to learn about the program. It’s free to get certified, and every little action helps make our community more sustainable.

Congratulations to these newly certified green businesses:

Carlsbad was the first city in San Diego County to join the California Green Business Network, a statewide network of 4,000 certified businesses in 40 cities that are committed to environmentally sustainable practices.

Studies have shown that practicing sustainability is often good for the local community and good for a business’s bottom line. Reducing water consumption through low-flow devices saves both money and resources. Upgrading lighting to energy-saving fixtures can help reduce costs over the long term. Reducing waste, using environmentally friendly cleaning products and cutting down on the use of toxic chemicals helps a business and its local community.

As part of the network, Carlsbad businesses can access promotions and rebates that help them go green. Participating in the Green Business Network is another way the city is working toward meeting its Climate Action Plan goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
