In 1996, the Alameda County Green Business Program began offering technical assistance and incentives to auto repair shops wishing to go beyond basic regulatory requirements. The program was extended to printers and hotels in 2000. So far, over 290 Alameda County businesses and public agencies have formed partnerships with the San Francisco Bay Area Green Business Program. According to County Coordinator, Pamela Evans, promoting green businesses translates directly to the bottom line. Customers prefer doing business with companies who protect the environment.
