Volunteer Opportunity description

Sustainable Silicon Valley (SSV) is a dynamic collaboration of 120+ businesses, governments,
academic and non-governmental organizations (Partners), and scores of volunteers addressing
environmental sustainability in Silicon Valley. We envision a healthy environment, a vibrant
economy, and a socially equitable community. SSV was designed to move beyond the traditional
command-and-control model of environmental regulation to one of collaboration and
partnership. By focusing on the desired outcome, rather than compliance-driven standards,
participants can choose the methods to reach that outcome that make the most sense financially
and technologically for each of them. We operate at the intersection of policy and action.
