Green Cities California
Green Cities California (GCC) is a coalition of 13 local governments that have implemented groundbreaking environmental policies to accelerate the implementation of sustainability policies and programs through collaborative action. GCC recognizes that current global environmental challenges related to the over-consumption of natural resources, climate change, peak oil, availability of clean fresh water, food security, and environmental justice put California cities and residents at serious risk and require immediate action at all levels.
Current GCC members are Berkeley, Hayward, Los Angeles, Marin County, Pasadena, Oakland, Richmond, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica, all leaders in developing and implementing leading edge sustainability policies and practices. The requirements for GCC membership include the pre-requisites of 1) a local sustainability plan, 2) the United Nations Urban Environmental Accords, and 3) the Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement.
