Event Details

Is your business positioned to capture an increasing consumer base committed to sustainability and social responsibility? Consumers are getting wise to greenwashing and many now look for third-party certification to inform their consumer choices. Recognition through the Colorado Green Business Network offers that third party verification (for free!).

Join Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and the Steamboat Springs Chamber for the second of four ‘Empowering Business Leadership for Climate’ workshops and learn about the benefits of state-level recognition and how to earn points to reach Bronze-level certification year one.

If you were unable to attend the first workshop, you are still welcome to join the series. During this workshop, the Colorado Green Business Network of the Yampa Valley (CGBN-YV) team will:

  • Provide a brief overview of the green business program and the support role they can play in connecting your business with state resources.
  • Walk through the recognition application process and how to earn points.
  • Foster the growth of our Yampa Valley green business community over a (FREE!) lunch and conversation about local green business opportunities and challenges.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
