SiGBA creates a uniquely diverse environment for our members to connect with like minded community members
SiGBA helps promote green businesses, providing our members a public platform through our website, our social and business events. In 2009, SiGBA launched "Keep the Sierra Green" business recognition program in partnership with the Town of Truckee, Nevada County, Placer County, Incline Village General Improvement District, the North Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce, and the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce. This is a free program available to any businesses interested in reducing their environmental footprint.
