ICLEI: International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives is an international association of local governments and their associations that have made a commitment to sustainable development.

U.S. Green Building Council: The built environment has a profound impact on our natural environment, economy, health and productivity. The U.S. Green Building Council is a non-profit community of leaders working to promote green building.

Climate Communities: Climate Communities has convened cities, counties, councils of government, and other units of local government to:  (1) educate national policy-makers on the critical role of local governments in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution and adapting to the impacts of climate change, and (2) ensure that Congress and the federal agencies enact policies and programs that provide the resources, tools and incentives localities need to meet the climate change challenge.

National Association of Counties (NACo) Cool Counties: This national effort is designed to reduce greenhouse gases and marshal all 3,000 counties of the United States to this cause. This initiative will be interwoven at all levels of government planning and decision making yet be flexible enough to allow different levels of commitment based on each county's situation to ensure long-lasting, measurable changes.

Cool Cities Across America: Cool Cities are cities that have made a commitment to stopping global warming by signing the U.S. Mayors' Climate Protection Agreement. Begun in 2005, the Cool Cities campaign empowers city residents and local leaders to join and encourage their cities to implement smart energy solutions to save money and build a cleaner, safer future.
