More than 400 Alameda County businesses and public agencies have been certified as green businesses through the Green Business Program.
The Green Business Program verifies that a business meets higher standards of environmental performance. Businesses that meet the standards are officially recognized as both a Bay Area Green Business and a California Green Business.
When your community and customers see that you are a certified green business, they know that your business is committed to taking action to conserve resources and prevent pollution in both the facility and operation and your business complies with environmental regulations in the areas of waste, energy, water, pollution prevention, and air quality. Being a solution to environmental change can translate directly to the bottom line. Customers prefer supporting businesses that contribute to building a thriving economy and sustainable, vibrant communities.
