Westchester Green Business Challenge

In 2009, Westchester County government formed a public/private partnership with The Business Council of Westchester, to launch the Westchester Green Business Challenge (WGBC). The program is a direct result of the 2008 Westchester County Action Plan for Climate Change & Sustainable Development that identified the business sector as a key stakeholder in reducing county greenhouse gas emissions. The program is a 501c3 nonprofit organization within The Business Council of Westchester, administered by Green Team Spirit.
