Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

The California Green Business Network oversees 25 green business programs throughout California. To date, 3,396 California Green Business participants have saved more than $41 million through green practices. They have also prevented emissions of more than one million tons of GHG's, diverted more than 1.5 million tons of waste from landfills, and saved 750+ million gallons of water.

There are multiple businesses that have been unable to complete their certification due to retrofit costs.
