San Francisco City and County

The City and County of San Francisco launched its Green Business Program in early 2004. Currently, there are over 100 businesses recognized as San Francisco Green Businesses from aquariums to hotels to pet boarding facilities. At present, the SFGBP is focused on the hotel, restaurant and office sectors although all businesses are welcome to apply.

The goal of the San Francisco Green Business Program is to achieve a healthier and cleaner environment by helping businesses integrate environmental responsibility into their operations in a manner that is sustainable as well as profitable.
