The Bay Area Green New Deal (GND)
The Bay Area Green New Deal (GND) calls for the swift and complete conversion to a 100 percent renewable energy system for both electricity and transport by 2030, partnered with the full de-carbonization of the economy by 2040. With focused investments on the city and county level, the Bay Area will pioneer the economy of the future.
The Bay Area Green New Deal will lead our region out of the economic crisis as well as the climate crisis. The Bay Area Green New Deal is a commitment to a Green economic recovery as we emerge stronger after the Covid-19 Pandemic. Preparing and transitioning the Bay Area workforce for the Green era is essential to maintaining the Bay Area’s leadership in innovation and prosperity. The Bay Area will be climate neutral by 2045.
To achieve this, The Bay Area Green New Deal template has been developed. It contains ten critical policy areas for Local Goverment to support and to strengthen with local Policy and planning.
