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 City’s 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
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.
