San Pablo Accomplishments

The City of San Pablo, in recognizing the impacts of climate change, believes that energy-efficiency is a crucial step to the preservation of San Pablo’s health, safety and security.  Reducing electricity and natural gas usage saves community members and the City money, while decreasing anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions that have been linked to climate change.  In support of these efforts, the City joined ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability in 2009 and has been pursuing their “Five Milestones for Climate Mitigation.”
