Colorado Green Business Network of Erie

Erie’s Economic Development Department and Sustainability Division are excited to partner with the Colorado Green Business Network (CGBN) to promote and recognize sustainable businesses in the Town of Erie. The program’s goal is to encourage Erie businesses to look at ways to save energy, reduce waste, increase water efficiency, and lower transportation impacts.

Colorado Green Business Network of Erie (CBGNE) provides free, off-site coaching and technical assistance, and recognizes businesses who have started to reduce their resource use and implement sustainability into operations. State-level recognition offers several benefits including networking opportunities, awards, and water and energy efficiency resources, and expertise that can provide businesses with immediate financial savings.
