What is the San José Climate Smart Challenge?
The Climate Smart Challenge is a joint effort between the City of San José and
the American Cities Climate Challenge to engage San José residents, building
owners, and tenants in reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.
The Climate Smart Challenge supports Climate Smart San José, the City’s
communitywide initiative to reduce air pollution and improve quality of life.
There are two pathways: Better Communities for residents and
Better Buildings for building owners and managers.

What is Better Buildings?
Better Buildings is open to owners and managers of commercial and higher
education buildings who want to improve their buildings’ energy efficiency.
