21-22 Clark County Green Business Outreach Coordinator
The Clark County Green Business Program ( provides support and resources to businesses taking steps to evaluate their business practices and and minimize their environmental footprint. We offer businesses a certification program to recognize efforts related to environmental and social sustainability. The certification program includes stormwater, hazardous materials, water and wastewater, energy, and waste and recycling, and we also assess community and employee engagement. This is an exciting project to learn about how businesses are moving towards sustainability, making positive changes and giving back to the community. Green Business program also aims to assist businesses in finding ways to eliminate waste and keep material out of the landfill. More than 30% of the waste thrown away by businesses in Clark County is food scraps, which presents a huge opportunity to inform the business community about our local food waste composting program and about strategies to reduce food waste. The member in this position will support businesses by assisting in their efforts to develop green team projects and increase environmental sustainability through waste reduction, recycling and composting programs. Interviews will be conducted in June and July. Position contingent on funding.
