Sustainable Silicon Valley (SSV) is a dynamic collaboration of 120+ businesses, governments,

academic and non-governmental organizations (Partners), and scores of volunteers addressing

environmental sustainability in Silicon Valley. We envision a healthy environment, a vibrant

economy, and a socially equitable community. SSV was designed to move beyond the

traditional command-and-control model of environmental regulation to one of collaboration
