San Jose

Resource Team

The San Jose Green Vision Resource Team is a joint effort by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the City of San Jose to support the City’s Green Vision and to implement projects which affect air quality at a local level.

San Jose Green Vision Goals:

  • Create 25,000 Clean Tech jobs as the World Center of Clean Tech Innovation
  • Reduce per capita energy use by 50 percent
  • Receive 100 percent of our electrical power from clean renewable sources
  • Build or retrofit 50 million square feet of green buildings
  • Divert 100 percent of the waste from our landfill and convert waste to energy
  • Recycle or beneficially reuse 100 percent of our wastewater (100 million gallons per day)
  • Adopt a General Plan with measurable standards for sustainable development
  • Ensure that 100 percent of public fleet vehicles run on alternative fuels
  • Plant 100,000 new trees and replace 100 percent of our streetlights with smart, zero-emission lighting
  • Create 100 miles of interconnected trails
Business, civic and environmental organizations have come together to collaborate on projects which support the City’s Green Vision. The team has conducted a series of free Home Energy Savings Workshops to help residents learn ways to save money and energy in the home. Most recently, the team is working on a project to reduce junk mail delivered to San Jose residents.
