Many moved to Contra Costa for the beauty of the hills and the water. We want to protect this environment in every way. Working with our businesses to green their operations—and recognizing them for their inspiring efforts—is one more way to do this. We want to show that a business can be both green and profitable at the same time. And we want to encourage residents to shop at these local businesses to support them. The list of businesses located in Contra Costa is maintained by the Association of Bay Area Governments (abag)For more information on the Green Business Program can be found here
