The Playbook is a web-based resource, provides strategies, tips, and tools that cities and counties can use to take immediate action on climate change through: Green building, green neighborhoods, and sustainable infrastructure.The Playbook is designed both for communities that are considering making the first steps toward these, as well as for those who want to take existing efforts to a new level.

Project Partners: A consortium of more than 20 local governments, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and utilities have produced the first phase of the Playbook to help promote the goals set out in the U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement. More than 600 mayors, representing more than 50 million U.S. residents, have signed the agreement, which commits communities to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to the targets set in the Kyoto Protocol.

Project Team: Holland Barrs Planning Group has lead a North American team of consultants to develop the Playbook. In recognition of the rapid evolution of climate change resources, the Playbook is to designed to be kept up-to-date with leading actions and new resources, ensuring the project’s long-term value and relevancy.
