Sustainability Program
Challenge. Benicia, California, a small city of 26,000 operating in the heavily populated San Francisco Bay Area, needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10% below 2000 levels by 2020. Recognizing that Benicia Industrial Park contributed disproportionately to overall emissions, the city faced a common dilemma: Do we regulate or do something else?  

Solution. Their “something else” was the sustainable management program, “Business Saves.”
Developed with the assistance of Chabin Concepts, the program addressed energy and water efficiency, waste, recycling and fuel, as well as employee training in sustainability practices. Designed to benefit the 450 industrial park businesses, ”Business Saves” is notable for:  
  • Assessment. Free sustainability analysis integrated with business retention outreach  (facilitated by ExecutivePulse) provided businesses with recommended sustainability measures, including estimated costs and ROI.
  • Reimbursement. Sustainability Fund  provided reimbursements and loans for improvements undertaken by businesses.  
  • Tracking. Web-based tracking through greentraks.com monitored continual reduction of greenhouse gases and helped businesses manage resources.  
  • Training. Workshops and training was offered to business management and employees.  
  • Recognition. Businesses taking action were recognized with Benicia Green certification.
