About Us

Acterra brings people together to create local solutions for a healthy planet.

Acterra is an environmental non-profit, formed in 2000 by the merger of two of the region's most respected and effective environmental groups: Bay Area Action (BAA) and the Peninsula Conservation Center Foundation (PCCF).

Acterra recognizes the urgency of the present moment, especially regarding climate change.  We educate people about new energy options for home and businesses, transportation alternatives, and energy and water efficiency. 

Our programs focus on clean energy and climate change, and include: Business Partnerships for Sustainability, Green@Home to Grid Ready, an environmentally-focused lecture series, and an Environmental Library and Resource Center.
