Nevada Green Business Network’s 2022 Impact Report is now published!
The Nevada Green Business Network (NVGBN) is a coalition of organizations that came together to offer a free statewide green business certification program. The program helps small to medium-sized businesses protect the environment, save money on resources, and improve employee wellness among other things.
With the help of greenUP!, Western Nevada College and several green business partners, the NVGBN certified over 40 businesses since the beginning of the program in 2020 and over 100 businesses are in process. Between 2020 and 2022, businesses were able to save $200,000.
The 2022 impact report highlights the environmental costs local businesses were able to save with certification. In 2022, businesses saved 510,915 lbs of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere, the equivalent of carbon sequestered by 276 acres of U.S. forests in one year.
