Alameda's Green Initiatives

In February of 2008, Alameda City Council adopted a Resolution which set a citywide greenhouse gas reduction goal: 25% below 2005 baseline levels. The City Council also adopted the Local Action Plan for Climate Protection, which offers a framework for achieving this goal.


The City partnered with Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda (CASA) and presented the Zero Waste Implementation Plan, which was adopted by City Council in October of 2010.


In recent years, the City has worked to promote and implement a number of strategies to reduce both the City's and the community's carbon footprint.
