The City of Torrance recently received a grant from the California Green Business Network, which provides a certification program that will help businesses become more environmentally sustainable and responsible. Certification in the Program includes the implementation of best management practices that address energy efficiency, waste reduction, water conservation, and a number of other “green” practices that will help business and save money.
The City of Torrance has partnered with the Environmental Services Center of the South Bay Cities Council of Governments to help administer the grant, and their staff will be doing outreach to Torrance businesses. Please consider learning more about this program and participating to help your business save resources and reduce costs.
