Long Beach businesses that commit to environmental and sustainable practices are not only being recognized by their community, they’re now certifiably green.

“The goal of the program is to change the business culture so that sustainable practices become the standard practices,” Courtney Chatterson, communications specialist at the sustainability office, told the Business Journal.
The statewide Green Business Program helps local businesses to conserve energy and water, minimize waste and reduce their carbon footprints.
