“We have an opportunity to improve the lives of every San Diegan in all of our neighborhoods. This plan reflects our duty to preserve our children’s future and hand down a San Diego that is cleaner than it was when we received it. San Diego’s next chapter starts here.” – Kevin L. Faulconer, Mayor of City of San Diego on the Climate Action Plan
Big cities and regional organizations are one of the main drivers of adoption of resource-efficient products, services and practices in the United States. San Diego is now the largest city in the US to adopt requirements for 100 percent of its electricity to come from renewable sources—twice the level California’s has set as a goal.
San Diego’s Climate Action Plan is among the most far-ranging and ambitious, encompassing guidelines for:
- Energy efficiency and renewable power
- Land use
- Waste management
- Water efficiency
Join us on Thursday May 12 to learn the latest news, discussed and presented by experts and influence makers in the field. The event also features networking and great food on the outdoor terrace overlooking the beautiful La Jolla coast.
