The Green Needham Collaborative (GNC) is an expanding group of individuals with a common interest in energy and the environment. A key GNC objective is providing opportunities for communication and collaborative projects among institutions, local organizations, and interested citizens.


Priorities:

GNC's priority is to advance projects related to energy efficiency and sustainable design that will help the Town of Needham and its residents:

* Reduce the use of fossil fuels;
* Save money on energy;
* Promote innovation in energy conservation and energy production, including renewables; and
* Offer collaborative, educational opportunities for Olin College & Needham Public School students to engage in related projects. 


Initiated in September of 2006, GNC has provided a forum for discussion of energy-related topics, including new and emerging technologies, as well as local and state initiatives aimed at reducing the use of fossils fuels.
