Ventura County Red Cross seeks LEED
With its environmentally friendly new headquarters, the American Red Cross of Ventura County is now the first chapter in the country to go green.
“Operating green allows the Red Cross to provide for our clients in a variety of ways,” said Chris Johnson, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross of Ventura County. “Aside from being the right thing to do environmentally, the money we save on conserving energy allows us to have more financial resources available to assist those during their time of need.”
From its new headquarters in Camarillo — which opened in April — Ventura County’s Red Cross serves as a regional hub, with Johnson overseeing all chapters north to Santa Cruz County.
