Winter always seems like the perfect time to catch up on paperwork and knock items off the to-do list that have been shelved during the hectic harvest and holiday seasons. Green business certification updates was the first project completed on my list this year.

Jordan Winery is now enrolled in the Sonoma Clean Power program, which provides businesses access to environmentally friendly power, generated by local renewable resources, such as solar, wind and geothermal. Roughly 90% of our electricity comes from our hillside solar arrays and the balance from renewable energy. Using 10% renewable energy means that Jordan’s electrical use is now carbon neutral.

We also just finished updating all our member Sonoma Green Business Program paperwork, an organization that assists and promotes local businesses that operate with the most environmentally responsible practices. All of our latest sustainable business processes and procedures had to be outlined in detail, from recycling and waste water treatment to energy use and business card printing.
