The Green Team San Joaquin, an award-winning program of the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce, is a collaborative effort between private businesses, municipal and county solid waste divisions, economic development professionals and the community of San Joaquin County.
The purpose of the Green Team San Joaquin is to create a nexus between commerce and environment and to enhance the delivery of Chamber services and to address economic, environmental, and quality of life issues in Stockton and San Joaquin County. In 2005, the Chamber embarked with this program by collaboratively searching for regional solutions to challenges facing San Joaquin County and their businesses. Since then, the program has been replicated in Stanislaus county, Merced county, and Fresno county.
Simply put, by assisting businesses in "going green" will not only reduce their costs of doing business, but it will also help the environment and move the San Joaquin County economy forward.
