Clark County to show ‘love’ of green businesses on Valentine’s Day
Vancouver, WA – On Feb. 14, Clark County Environmental Services will officially launch its program to recognize local businesses that follow green practices.
The Clark County Green Business Program supports business “green teams” that follow an improvement process. The program helps businesses reduce environmental footprints and can save money in the process.
The free program is a pilot project with 13 local businesses that have met program requirements. They will be honored as founding members during a kick-off ceremony from noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Heathman Lodge, 7801 NE Greenwood Drive.
To participate, a business must establish an active green team and complete assessments in six program areas: solid waste and recycling, water and wastewater, toxics, energy, stormwater management and community engagement.
The assessments require a business to establish baseline information on its operations, including kilowatts and therms of energy used, cubic yards of waste and recycling, gallons of stormwater runoff and volunteer service to the community.
More Information and online registration for the lunch is available at www.clarkgreenbiz.com. Registration also is available by calling Pete DuBois, at (360) 397-2121 ext. 4961. Seating is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
