Greening the Golden State (in Sacramento)

April 9, 2018 - April 10, 2018

California on the Move

“We have a cap-and-trade system, which is a very efficient way to reducing greenhouse gases. We have a zero-emission vehicle mandate. We have efficiency standards for our buildings, for our appliances. California is showing that dealing with climate is good for the economy — not bad. It’s a culture that’s on the move — not pulling up the drawbridge out of fear and economic insecurity.” – California Governor Jerry Brown

Greening the Golden State

As a result of its legislative and financial commitment to emission reduction and environmental stewardship, the Golden State has emerged as a national and international leader in sustainable policy, practice and technology. The annual Green California Summit was established eleven years ago to support these efforts and to provide information, education and resources to the public and private sector professionals who create, manage and execute green projects and programs.

The 2018 Summit comes to the Sacramento Convention Center on April 9-10, at a time when changing priorities at the federal level have heightened the importance of California’s efforts. The Summit offers an unique opportunity for stakeholders to connect, exchange ideas and attend education sessions that highlight best practices and effective strategies.

Keynote and Expo Registration is Free

Entrance to the Green Solutions Expo on April 9-10, the keynote session and the annual Leadership Awards reception is free. Commissioner Andrew McAllister (left) of the California Energy Commission will speak in the opening session. Bio here.

The Expo allows you to discover scores of green products and services all in one place. Find out what’s new and get an intensive, hands-on education that’s not available anywhere else. The Expo also offers you a chance to look at the latest clean vehicles, EV charging solutions and more. Click here to start your registration.

Concurrent Education Sessions on April 9-10 will cover a range of topics. (More here.) The Summit will also include special Technology Showcase education sessions that are open to all (details to be announced).

If you are a member of a professional organization that has an interest in sustainability, you may want to consider taking part in our Partners in Learning program. Meet onsite at the Summit, a dynamic atmosphere that is designed to inspire, inform and encourage interaction.

“We are not going to allow one election to reverse generations of progress – at the height of our historic diversity, scientific advancement, economic output, and sense of global responsibility.  Equity and environmental justice are now hardwired into all of our climate policies in an unprecedented way.”
– Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León at the Vatican Pontifical Academy of Sciences, November 3, 2017
