Contra Costa County
Green Business Program

Join the Green Business Community!

The Contra Costa Green Business Program helps small and medium-sized businesses find ways to minimize their impact on the environment by eliminating or reducing waste generated, finding alternatives to hazardous materials, reducing energy and water consumption, and improving the quality of air, wastewater, and storm water discharges. Businesses, including public and non-profit organizations, that meet all of the industry-specific requirements are recognized as certified Green Businesses.

  • The Green Business Program is aligned with EBMUD’s mission of responsible natural resources management and environmental stewardship. EBMUD’s Green Team appreciates Contra Costa County’s support and collaboration.
