About the program

First launched in 2009 by Westchester County in partnership with The Business Council of Westchester, the Westchester Green Business Challenge (WGBC) is an award-winning public-private partnership (501c3 nonprofit) designed to move Westchester-based organizations down the path toward environmental sustainability while improving performance and saving money. To date the program has grown to include over 300 members.

In early 2014 the program expanded to include Westchester Green Business-Certified, the region's only green business certification program that provides the tools, training and expertise for organizations to incorporate sustainability into all areas of operation. Click here for program details.
