The Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District, the founder and leader of Santa Barbara Car Free, is a partner in the Green Business Program of Santa Barbara County. The Green Business Program is a multi-jurisdictional effort to encourage businesses to implement actions to protect, preserve, and improve the environment above and beyond what is required by law.
The program is voluntary and offers assistance and incentives, including an official Green Business certification upon completion of the recommended actions.Since the program’s inception in 2008, the Green Business Program has certified nearly 100 businesses in the Santa Barbara County region. A wide variety of business types have completed the certification process, incuding hotels, restaurants, automotive and office/retail businesses. The Green Business Program is working toward creating certification checklists for even more business types, such as wineries and dental practices.
