Top 10 Climate-Ready Cities in the U.S.

Top 10 Climate-Ready Cities in the U.S.

Where do I start? I believe it all starts with political leadership and commitment. San Francisco is one of only three cities which made the final screening who are members of the U.S. Mayors for Climate Protection, Clinton 40, the Carbon War Room and ICLEI. Like Seattle, it has a very proactive university community with 11 members of AASHE and is also home to Presidio Graduate School , another one of the first and best dedicated sustainable MBA programs in the world. San Francisco also has the largest number of LEED certified buildings per capita in the U.S. and has an active clean tech investment community. It is home to probably the largest impact investment conference in the world, SOCAP . San Francisco ranked in the top 3 in every category I evaluated and deserves to be crowned the “coolest” Climate-Ready City in the U.S. for 2011.
