About Us

WHO WE ARE

Nevada Green Business Network (NVGBN) is a coalition of organizations that came together to offer a statewide green business certification program. We work with small to medium-sized businesses to offer free assistance and recognize efforts that save energy and water, reduce waste, prevent pollution and stormwater impacts, and encourage better commute options. We offer a checklist of best practices that businesses can implement, and we certify businesses that meet minimum thresholds of environmental performance. Once certified, we help to promote green businesses throughout the state.

“Our Partners offer assistance, access to utility incentives, and other helpful resources to achieve certification.”

Our program utilizes GreenBizTracker, an online platform that makes it easy for businesses to register and get started, track their efforts, and become certified. The platform also allows us to collect and aggregate data to measure outcomes from the range of practices that certified green businesses are implementing. We will use this data to report the collective impact that certified green businesses are having on their own bottom line and toward the state’s environmental goals.

The Nevada Green Business Network was founded by environmental nonprofit greenUP! in partnership with Western Nevada College. Funding for this program was provided through grants awarded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
