LAS VEGAS — Today, the Nevada Conservation League announced its partnership with the Nevada Green Business Network that is part of a statewide effort to identify sustainable businesses and provide resources for sustainable business practices. Through education, networking, and collaboration, the Nevada Green Business Network finds new ways for businesses to be more efficient, healthy, and attract new customers.
“The pursuit of a healthier climate future is an undertaking that requires all hands on deck, including, and especially, the help of businesses — and today, we are excited to join a network of leaders who share this same vision,” said Nevada Conservation League Deputy Director Verna Mandez. “As a partner, we look forward to expanding opportunities for Southern Nevada businesses to implement practices that help to protect the environment and employees and reduce costs, including energy efficiency, water conservation, waste diversion from landfills, and reducing hazardous materials.”
As a partner of the Nevada Green Business Network, the Nevada Conservation League will help identify green businesses in Southern Nevada that show interest in conservation and sustainability and provide them a platform to advocate for pro-conservation and business-friendly policies.
Founded by the environmental nonprofit greenUP! and Western Nevada College, the Nevada Green Business Network utilizes education, networking, and collaboration to help businesses find new ways to save energy and reduce pollution.
Nevada Green Business Network (NVGBN) is part of a statewide effort to generate a green business certification program. Partners utilize the GreenBiz Tracker database to collect outcomes that measure the state’s environmental performance.
The program targets businesses and manufacturers of all types and we encourage businesses throughout Nevada to go online to https://nv.greenbiztracker.org to get certified. For more information on the Nevada Green Business Network visit NVGreenBusiness.org.
