Using Translation

The County of San Mateo has added a translation feature developed by Google Translate to assist web visitors in understanding information on this website in a variety of foreign languages. Please be aware that Google Translate, a free third party service which the County does not control, provides automated computer translations that may not give you an exact translation. The County cannot guarantee the accuracy of translations through Google Translate so translations should not be considered exact and only used as a rough guide. Anyone relying on information obtained from Google Translate does so at his or her own risk. The County disclaims and will not accept any liability for damages or losses of any kind caused by the use of the Google Translate feature.

The Sustainability Department certifies and promotes small to medium-sized businesses that operate in an environmentally-responsible manner through the San Mateo County Green Business Program (SMCGBP). The SMCGBP also serves non-profits, faith organizations, and government offices. By offering technical assistance and resources, the County helps local businesses save money by teaching them how to conserve energy and water, minimize waste, prevent pollution, and shrink their carbon footprints.

The program, which is part of the California Green Business Network, is available to small and medium businesses throughout San Mateo County in the following sectors: office/retail, restaurant/catering, hotel, cleaning services, auto repair, small manufacturing, printing, and medical/dental practices.

While the program focuses on retail and commercial businesses, it serves other sectors. Nonprofits, faith organizations, and County, City and other government facilities or individual department locations can also apply for certification.

By joining the program, businesses learn how to integrate sustainable practices into their operations while saving money and improving employee and customer health.
