Napa Valley Vintners Receives Certification from Bay Area Green Business Program
12/5/2007 - Napa Valley, CA-The office of the Napa Valley Vintners organization has been certified by the Association of Bay Area Governments’ Bay Area Green Business Program as a Green Business, one of only approximately a dozen businesses in Napa County to receive certification so far.
To be certified as a Green Business, a company or organization not only brings its operations into compliance with all environmental regulations, but must also meet the targeted resource conservation and pollution prevention measures of the program.
Greening the NVV’s office is the latest in the organization’s ongoing environmental initiatives. An NVV member Advisory Committee has been working for a year on a Napa Green Certified Winery program – which tailors the Green Business program to winery operations. Five pilot wineries are completing the final trials and the full program will be officially launched in early 2008.
