About Cupertino Green

Made up of both the Sustainability and Environmental Programs Divisions, Cupertino Green is a team committed to maintaining our City as a sustainable and healthy place to live, learn, work and play for all our community members. 

Housed within the Office of the City Manager, the Sustainability Division oversees Cupertino’s Community and Municipal Climate Action Plan, which defines strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provides residents, businesses and schools with programs and services focused on energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, alternative transportation and other sustainable actions. 

The Environmental Programs Division, housed within the Public Works Department, manages the Citys waste disposal services and provides composting and recycling programs to Cupertino residents and businesses. Environmental Programs ensures State and federal requirements are met to protect our creeks and prevent stormwater runoff pollutants from entering storm drain systems which drain to local creeks and the San Francisco Bay.

Climate Action Plan

Cupertino’s Climate Action Plan (CAP), defines strategies to not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also provide energy, water, fuel, and cost savings for the City, its community members and businesses, further improving Cupertino’s already high quality of life. The plan also represents another example of a successful partnership between engaged community members and City staff to jointly plan for Cupertino’s sustainable future and continue to lead by example on important environmental issues.
