Sustainability in Downtown

Culver City is kicking off a new Sustainable Business Certification Program developed under the California Green Business Network (CAGBN) guidelines. Locally-based organizations Balanced Approach and Sustainable Works have partnered to develop and administer the program.

Eligible businesses will be guided through an on-site sustainability assessment. Upon completion, sustainability experts will develop an Action Plan that will provide measures to optimize business operations, purchasing, and equipment to lower costs, reduce energy, water use and pollution. Qualified businesses that sign up before July 31 will have the opportunity to participate in SCE’s free energy efficiency Direct Install program. The first 15 businesses to register will receive a free assessment. The first 10 businesses to complete their Action Plans will become certified at no charge, and receive public recognition at an end of the year ceremony.
