#3 in the US, #6 in the World
CEMTF was founded to continue the work of the ad-hoc subcommittee that was formed after the Climate Emergency Declaration passed in Berkeley, CA. Berkeley's Declaration on June 12, 2018 made it the 3rd jurisdiction in the United States and 6th in the world to declare. As of today, there are 2,268 jurisdictions that have declared Climate Emergencies around the world.
The City of Berkeley's electrification ordinance for new construction was the brainchild of the CEMTF. CEMTF's Founder cosponsored the ordinance and encouraged her colleague to take the lead.
