Bay Area Green Business Program

The Bay Area Green Business Program is a partnership of government agencies and utilities that helps local businesses take action to conserve resources, prevent pollution, minimize waste, and comply with environmental regulations. We offer an easy-to-use framework for improving environmental performance. Over 1,600 businesses and public agencies have been recognized since 1997.

The Program was developed by Bay Area local governments in collaboration with US EPA, Cal EPA Department of Toxic Substances Control and the business community. The Association of Bay Area Governments coordinates the Program, which is implemented by Green Business Coordinators in 9 participating counties. The programs are funded by local and regional government agencies, utility companies, special districts and nonprofit organizations. Some funding also comes from government and non-profit foundation grants.

The San Francisco Green Business Program is a member of the Bay Area Green Business Program. As a member, San Francisco participates in the development of regional policies and greening standards. In addition, the San Francisco program incorporates into its standards environmental services and laws specific to San Francisco.
