Climate change is one of the biggest threats to our world today. By working together we can lower our carbon emissions and reduce its impacts on our community and loved ones.  

Since 1970, Acterra has been helping Bay Area residents, businesses and community organizations band together to to address environmental problems locally. When we partner together we can have a big impact, whether it's by electrification of homes, businesses, and vehicles; or through environmental education to raise awareness of climate change impacts or spread sustainable workplace practices; or local programs and resources that save money for, and empower, underresourced communities. There are simple steps that we can take to do our part! Our world, and our future generations depend on it.
