How Can I Become a Certified Green Business?
The San Mateo County Green Business Program certifies and promotes small to medium-sized businesses that operate in an environmentally-responsible manner. By offering technical assistance and resources, the County helps local businesses save money by teaching them how to conserve energy and water, minimize waste, prevent pollution, and shrink their carbon footprints.
The program, which is part of the California Green Business Network, is available to small and medium businesses throughout San Mateo County in the following sectors: office/retail, restaurant/catering, hotel, cleaning services, auto repair, small manufacturing, printing, and medical/dental practices.
While the program focuses on retail and commercial businesses, County and City facilities and individual department locations can also apply for certification.
