Emerald Cities Collaborative

As a consortium of diverse organizations - businesses, unions, community organizations, development intermediaries, social justice advocates, research and technical assistance providers - the Emerald Cities Collaborative is focused on reducing the carbon footprint of the nation's largest cities in a manner that encourages equal opportunity, shared wealth, and democracy.  The EEC's first project is to retrofit the nation's urban housing stock - a bold initiative that would significantly reduce the nation's carbon emissions - since in some cities housing can account for nearly 80 percent of all carbon emissions and since the 100 metropolitan regions account for 75 percent of all carbon emissions.
