ID360, a leading sustainability consulting company, announced today they have been chosen by the city of Foster City, California to design the management system and support implementation for the city’s Climate Action plan. Foster City adopted their Climate Action Plan in 2015 including targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

Foster City was one of the first cities to “opt-up” all municipal buildings to 100% renewable energy. They have received multiple Beacon Awards from the Institute for Local Government for its Environmental Sustainability Programs. 

Similarly, ID360 has been on the forefront of climate action leadership policy design and implementation for many years. Most recently, ID360 has supported clean energy choice programs in San Luis Obispo, energy reach code design in the City of South San Francisco, solar power mandates in the City of San Mateo, green building development in Menlo Park, and electric vehicle charging in the City of Palo Alto.

“We are excited to support Foster City’s climate action plans. Implementation is where we shine. We make it turnkey for City Managers and their staff.” 

Melanie Jacobson, Principal and Founder, ID360

With rapidly changing economics and policies related to climate action and implementation, the environmental stewardship responsibilities of city officials have increased. To begin the Foster City project, ID360 will conduct a comprehensive audit. This will include existing programs, metrics, ordinances, and interdepartmental coordination efforts as well as anything related to the fulfillment and implementation of the city’s sustainability goals. The assessment will lead to a management system designed to respond to new state legislation, changing priorities, and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction policies. Implementation and ongoing monitoring will follow.
