Emeryville Sustainability Infographic Front Final


Sustainability and innovation, with respect for the past. The Emeryville community strives to live within means that do not compromise the ability of future generations in Emeryville to enjoy a livable, healthy, and vibrant city. Sustainability is encouraged through redevelopment of contaminated land as a healthy and cost-effective way of improving the local environment, ensuring access to essential services, use of “green” construction techniques, and promoting lifestyles with low ecological impacts upon energy consumption, climate, and the natural environment. The Emeryville community will coordinate and collaborate with regional and other outside efforts to improve local conditions and continue sustainable development. The City will interweave the future and the past, while respecting the scale, character, and use ofhistorical neighborhoods and districts.  

Creating a green, sustainable city requires hard work, cooperation and a commitment from local government as well as every individual, business and institution in the city. Learn more about what the City is doing and what you can do by exploring the links below and following our Twitter.
