Westchester Green Business Program Expands in New York State
Dr. Marsha Gordon, President and CEO of the Business Council of Westchester, announced the expansion of the Westchester Green Business (WGB) program in New York State. Westchester Green Business was awarded funding through The Cleaner, Greener Communities initiative (CGC), a statewide program, to incorporate sustainability goals and principles into local decision-making, and leading to a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the generation of economic benefits.
The announcement was made at the quarterly Westchester Green Business Leaders in Sustainability Speaker Series held at Westchester Community College. Representatives from the Business Council of Westchester (BCW), Westchester County, Westchester Green Business (WGB) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) met to explore the role of business in achieving New York State’s energy goals.
The Westchester Green Business program is the region’s only green business certification program and currently has 71 member businesses and organizations of various sizes in a cross section of industries. The program began in 2009 as a partnership between The Business Council of Westchester and Westchester County.
