The “Green Vision” of the City of Berkeley:
Green Building for Homes

The goal of the City's Green Building Program is to remove barriers to green construction, and to promote polices and practices that encourage building green.  A green building is sited, designed, constructed and operated to enhance the well being of its occupants, and to minimize the negative impacts on the community and the natural environment.  Green buildings provide healthy, comfortable building interiors, maximize savings through the efficient use of energy and water and limit construction impacts on the natural environment. The City of Berkeley is committed to help green building become "business as usual". 

Climate Action Plan 
In November 2006, 81% of Berkeley voters endorsed ballot Measure G, which established an aggressive Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction target for our community – 80% by 2050 – and directed the City to develop a plan for achieving that target.  For more information, please see the  Berkeley Climate Action Plan
