Arnold Launches Green CA Site


California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is throwing some muscle towards a greener state. (This is part of a continued effort—read about the 29 bills he signed last fall here.) Last week, his administration unveiled "Green California," to provide state and local government agencies and California businesses with ideas, guidelines, reference materials, engineering data, and environmentally-friendly purchasing information, according to press material. The site is based on the Governor's vision of a greener and more energy efficient California. With a couple of clicks, you can find the latest news on the state's efforts to reduce energy and resource consumption, and on Executive Order S-20-04, A.K.A the Green Building Initiative. The Green Building Initiative, and its accompanying Green Building Action Plan, call for public buildings to be 20 percent more energy efficient by 2015. "We believe the site will demonstrate with facts and figures that environmentally smart business decisions can also save big bucks, while making life healthier for all of us," says State and Consumer Services Agency Secretary Rosario Marin. ::Green California
