Businesses—What You Can Do

Whether you are a small business or large corporation, your sustainability agenda is the same: you're looking for what you can do to make your business greener and also save money. Alameda County provides information and resources on how to become a recognized Green Business in our County. We encourage economic sustainability by working with small, local, or emerging vendors.

Become a Greener Business

Show your customers that your business is dedicated to environmental sustainability by earning an Alameda County Green Business Certification.

Other ways to "go green" with your business include investing in energy-saving projects, finding energy efficient appliances, and using greener energy. See details on this flyer.

Prepare for Emergencies

It's important to prepare for disasters including storm outages, flooding or wildfires. The resources on this flyer will get you started, including signing up for AC Alert, preparing an emergency kit, and having reliable power.

Get Inspired

Some of the projects we work on in our County may give you ideas for what you could do in your business, such as energy efficiency, environmentally preferable purchasing, greening the workplace, sustainable transportation, and water conservation.
