Are you interested in becoming a certified Green Business?

The County's Office of Sustainability will be launching San Mateo County’s very first Green Business Academy with a kickoff workshop on Friday, April 6th at the Burlingame Library.  By participating in their Green Business Academy, businesses receive assistance in implementing measures in the areas of waste and toxin reduction, environmentally preferable purchasing, water and energy conservation and efficiency, and pollution prevention.  Implementing these measures help reduce long-term operating costs while showcasing environmental practices.  Businesses that complete the certification process will be listed on both San Mateo County program’s website as well as the California Green Business Program’s website, which promotes businesses at the state and national level.

The Green Business Academy will consist of 2 workshops:

  • Friday, April 6th – Burlingame Main Library, 10am – noon
  • Friday, May 11th – Burlingame Main Library, 10am - noon
