We’re No. 4! (Hey, not bad.)
It’s no secret that Sacramento is a relatively “green” city. But it’s not quite the “Emerald City” yet. A new report by Oregon-based clean-tech research firm Clean Edge ranked Sacramento No. 4 on its U.S. Metro Clean Tech Index. The index factors in nearly two dozen statistics in categories such as green buildlings, transportation, clean electricity, carbon management, investment, workforce and innovation. San Jose topped the list, followed closely by San Francisco and Portland, Ore. Sacramento came in fourth, bolstered by its No. 1 rank in “clean economy job creation.” View a summary of the report at www.cleanedge.com/research/metro-index.
