Go Green


Here in Cambridge, we're more than just going green—we're restlessly innovating the very idea of it. Designated as a Green Community by the Department of Energy Resources, we have sustainability, clean energy, and climate protection on the brain. We're proud that our fair city has one of the highest walk scores in the US, and integrating the Hubway bike-share system is another component of establishing environmentally-friendly transportation alternatives. We're one of the first cities in the nation to take part in the Climate Resilient Communities (CRC) program of ICLEI—Local Governments for Sustainability, the first comprehensive climate adaptation program for local governments in the US. Through our Cambridge Energy Alliance initiative, we are working to make our buildings more energy efficient and to expand the use of renewable energy. Additionally, the city's annual GoGreen Awards recognize local businesses and organizations for their efforts to preserve the environment and quality of life in Cambridge.

Businesses on this site are listed as "Green Certified” if they identified themselves as certified by one of the following programs: LEED, Energy Star, Green Key, Green Restaurant Association, Green Seal.
