Posted in Models, Visions by fedwards on January 21st, 2008

Below is the description of the new website on our Sustainable Cities website list: Sustainable Silicon Valley. To visit their site go to http://www.sustainablesiliconvalley.org/.

Sustainable Silicon Valley (SSV) is a collaboration of businesses, governments, and non-governmental organizations that are identifying and addressing environmental and resource pressures in the Valley.

As its first initiative, SSV is engaging prominent Valley organizations to work towards a goal of reducing regional carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions 20% below 1990 levels by 2010. These are the SSV Partners.

The SSV approach to reaching this goal is to facilitate strategies to reduce CO2 emissions through increased energy and fuel efficiency and through the use of renewable sources of energy.

Vision: A thriving Silicon Valley with a healthy environment, a vibrant economy and a socially equitable community.

Mission: To work with the Silicon Valley community to create a more sustainable future using an Environmental Management System.
