Boston is a leader in sustainability and climate change planning. The city has launched initiatives and passed ordinances in green building, renewable energy, transit-oriented development, and related areas and is attempting to link some of these initiatives to economic development in clean technologies. Other cities and towns in the metropolitan area are also making great progress on the sustainability and climate change fronts.

Boston Green seeks to highlight these efforts and situate them in the context of what other cities around the world are doing. We also aim to provide useful links to explain some of the key clean technologies being developed and employed in the Boston area.
