When & Where
The Sustain OC mission is to accelerate sustainability in the greater Orange County area through innovation, collaboration and education. Thus broadening our previous CleanTech OC mission: a non-profit organization, is a catalyst to job creation and economic growth in the cleantech industry in Orange County and throughout California. The collaborative platform facilitates cooperation among its community including business, government and academia, and, so, helps to align goals and objectives to advance the development of renewable energy, clean transportation, energy efficiency (and other resource conservation), green building, green consumer products, and corporate sustainability. Finally, we serve to educate our community in all issues related to cleantech and sustainability.
