Why Green?

In an effort to preserve the unique place that is the Napa Valley, Napa County has launched the Green Business Program and (in conjunction with the Napa Valley Vintners), Napa Green Certified Winery Program. These programs were initiated in 2006 and have substantially grown since then. Through these programs businesses are able to demonstrate their care for the environment by going above and beyond 'business as usual'. Napa County Certified Green Businesses use eco-friendly products and environmentally sustainable business practices.


The Napa County Green Business Program is working with smaller, consumer-oriented businesses whose primary activities occur in a specific location, such as wineries, restaurants, hotels, travel and tour companies, office and retail operations, landscapers, and auto repair shops.

While we do work with small remodelers (generally those organizations with 5 and fewer employees who focus on remodeling existing homes and businesses), we regret that at this time we are unable to work with larger contractors and those involved in new construction. Fortunately, however, those businesses can seek certification from Build It Green and LEED.
