The Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI), a project of the William J. Clinton Foundation, has announced a global program developed in collaboration with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

The Climate Positive Development Program will support the development of large-scale urban projects and will incorporate the use of clean energy to ensure that the projects are climate positive.

Sixteen founding projects on six continents, supported by local governments and property developers, will demonstrate Climate Positive strategies.

To reduce the net greenhouse gas emissions of these projects to below zero, property developers and local governments will agree to work in partnership on specific areas of activity. This includes implementing economically viable innovations in building, the generation of clean energy, waste management, water management, transportation and outdoor lighting systems.

When the initial 16 projects are completed, nearly one million people are expected to live and work in Climate Positive communities. These communities will be located in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Panama, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden and the U.K.
