Mission Statement

C3 catalyzes climate action at the community level through collaboration, programs, and policy advocacy which directly reduce climate pollution and elevate the climate leadership of Virginia communities.

Key Programs

Program 1
Title:Business Sector
Description:Charlottesville Climate Collaborative’s Green Business Alliance (GBA) is a leadership circle of like-minded mid and large-size businesses committed to managing their energy use, reducing costs, mitigating risk, and reducing their climate impact. Members embrace a shared climate action commitment and are empowered to achieve that commitment through solutions that work for their business. C3 supports the GBA members by tracking their energy use, facilitating solutions as a group, and highlighting success. The GBA will also provide a forum to develop policy recommendations which advance members’ clean energy, energy efficiency, and transportation objectives.
Program 2
Title:Climate Policy
Description:C3’s Climate Policy Team acts as a catalyst to advance climate policies, programs, technologies, investments, and sustainable behaviors. We are working closely with our community’s stakeholders to pinpoint and promote the best set of climate policies for a future with economic prosperity, a healthy environment, and an equitable and democratic access to clean energy.
