Environmental coalitions in Alameda County are dedicated to providing the best possible services to its residents. To do this, they have formed strong partnerships with other organizations, including governments and energy efficiency programs. The county is part of the Alameda County Climate Protection Project, a collaboration between public health agencies, non-profit organizations, environmental groups, Medi-Cal managed care plans, community health clinics, hospitals, schools, and other interested parties. The Alameda County Asthma Coalition (ACAC) is also part of this initiative. The program promotes energy efficiency, water efficiency, waste reduction, resource conservation, and green building improvements.
Elected officials and staff meet regularly to plan strategic climate action as part of the 26% Climate Alliance for Alameda County Cities. Members stay informed about Coalition activities and participate in quarterly meetings or calls. The joint venture Silicon Valley Network and the Contra Costa Economic Association are working together under the direction of Alameda County to purchase on-site renewable energy systems for public agencies in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Energy Upgrade California helps landlords and renters in Alameda County make improvements to their homes that can increase the energy efficiency and comfort of their homes. This initiative is an important part of the county's commitment to environmental protection. By collaborating with other organizations and programs, environmental coalitions in Alameda County are able to more effectively meet the needs of its residents. This collaboration is essential for creating a healthier and more sustainable future for all.
