Certify Business Environmental Performance

The Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program is a partnership of environmental agencies, utilities and nonprofit organizations that assist, recognize and promote businesses and government agencies that volunteer to operate in a more environmentally responsible way.

To be certified "green," participating businesses must be in compliance with all regulations and meet program standards for conserving resources, preventing pollution and minimizing waste. The certifying agencies offer motivated businesses and agencies an easy-to-use framework for improving environmental performance.

The Task Force championed the Program as a way to reduce hazardous waste generation and promote pollution prevention and resource conservation.

The Task Force began planning efforts to establish the Green Business Program in August 2002. The Green Business Program was officially launched in early 2004 targeting Vehicle Service and Repair Facilities. We now certify vehicle service repair facilities, food service facilities, restaurants, general office/retail stores, plumbers, contractors/remodelers, janitorial companies, hotels/hospitality and printers.

Green Business Program History

The Bay Area Green Business Program was initially developed by local governments in the San Francisco Bay Area in collaboration with US EPA, Cal EPA Department of Toxic Substances Control and the business community. This original San Francisco Bay Area program has grown to include 7 participating counties who have certified over 300 businesses and public agencies since 1996.
