The purpose of the CAP is to make Hayward a more environmentally and socially sustainable community by reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions – the primary contributor to global warming, decreasing the community’s dependence on non-renewable resources, increasing Hayward’s potential for “green” economic development, and enhancing the health of all who live and work in Hayward” -City of Hayward website
