City of Burlingame

Beacon Participant Profile

“Like local governments across the U.S. and the world, Burlingame has made a commitment to address the challenge of climate change. Many local governments have authority over land use and transportation patterns, as well as solid waste disposal, green building, and other key issues related to GHG emissions. Thus, local governments can help encourage or require residents, businesses, public sector entities and other organizations within their boundaries to reduce emissions through local policies and programs designed to increase sustainability.” – City of Burlingame 2010 Community Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report
