Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2009
SteelBridge Insurance Services, an independent insurance agency in Santa Cruz, California, is proud to announce their new distinction as a "Green Certified Business" by the Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program.
On Tuesday April 7, the City Council of Santa Cruz, along with the Mayor, distinguished SteelBridge Insurance Services and eight other local businesses as "Green Certified" for their efforts in combating the global environmental crisis. SteelBridge Insurance has earned the recognition as an environmental leader for integrating responsible business practices into their company's everyday working habits.
In becoming a "Green Certified Business," SteelBridge has agreed to comply with all environmental regulations. The company is taking steps to conserve natural resources and prevent pollution, such as using more efficient lighting, purchasing in bulk, watering landscapes efficiently, recycling cardboard, using less toxic products, etc. The staff at SteelBridge Insurance has pledged to stay "green" in their business and personal lives and will strive to continually improve the state of the environment.
The Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program was employed to assist, recognize, and promote businesses and government agencies that volunteer to operate in a more environmentally responsible way. The program was officially launched in 2004 targeting high-pollutant companies but has since branched out to helping all types of businesses and services. Since its inception, the program has extended its services well beyond Monterey to neighboring cities and states, including Hawaii.
