Environment and Sustainability

Carbon Disclosure Program (CDP) recognizes the City of Emeryville for leading on environmental disclosure and performance.

CDP is a not-for profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, and states/regions. The City of Emeryville made the CDP's A List for 2018.


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. 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.
