The Town of Danville has made important strides in our effort to become more environmentally sustainable. Some of the actions the Town has already taken include: adding more fuel efficient vehicles, including hybrids, to the Town’s fleet; improving efficiency of heating and air conditioning systems at Town facilities; installation of solar energy panels at Town facilities; promoting access for pedestrians and cyclists through the Town’s trail program; promoting recycling, including e-waste recycling; lowering building permit fees for residential solar installations; and, providing information on the state's PACE Program that assists residents in financing environmentally friendly home improvements.
Within the pages of this website are tools and programs to help you learn about Danville's current efforts to promote environmental sustainability and make Danville more sustainable. We encourage you to use this site to find more ways to conserve energy, and to develop new ways to help Davnille live up to our goals of making our community both healthier and more sustainable.
Climate Action Plan
The Town’s Climate Action Plan was adopted by the Council on May 18, 2009. The plan is intended as best practices and is intended to provide a combination of actions the Town would take with respect to its own operations, some regulatory actions and cooperative efforts within the community to provide residents and business owners ways to reduce greenhouse emissions. More in depth and up to date information will be included in the Town’s General Plan.

Many moved to Contra Costa for the beauty of the hills and the water. We want to protect this environment in every way. Working with our businesses to green their operations—and recognizing them for their inspiring efforts—is one more way to do this. We want to show that a business can be both green and profitable at the same time. And we want to encourage residents to shop at these local businesses to support them. The list of businesses located in Contra Costa is maintained by the Association of Bay Area Governments (abag)For more information on the Green Business Program can be found here
