Green Business Program
A partnership with Redwood City,
San Mateo County, and the
Association of Bay Area Governments
The Green Business Program is set up to assist, recognize, and promote local businesses that volunteer to operate in a more environmentally responsible way.
To be certified "Green," businesses have to be in compliance with all state and local regulations and meet the program’s other standards for conserving energy and water, preventing pollution, and minimizing waste. The program was developed in 1997 by the Association of Bay Area Governments and it’s now offered throughout the Bay Area.
For more information and to apply for your business to become Green Certified, please visit this link (San Mateo County's RecycleWorks web site).
These Certified Green Businesses exhibit a real commitment to reducing waste and conserving resources, and they serve as a shining example to other businesses in Redwood City. They have discovered that it doesn’t cost a lot of money to go green, and in fact they can actually save money by going green when they reduce energy and water use. They also know that more and more customers in Redwood City will be looking to patronize those green businesses, so it’s really a win-win for everyone.
Redwood City is pleased to provide a list of the Redwood City businesses that have so far been Certified Green. Want to add your business to this list? Visit here to apply!
