Business Resources

As members of the Antioch Community, we all have a responsibility to be stewards of its economic and natural resources. Business profits and environmental benefits are not mutually exclusive. In many cases, conserving resources also save money and increase profits. Think lower utility bills and less supplies/materials purchased. Using less toxic products not only protect the environment, but also increase employee health and productivity. Please use the links to city programs and external programs to insure that your business and the resources you need to run it are here for generations.

Not sure where to start? Call the Environmental Resource Line at 925-779-6137 or email us for a personal consultation.
