We need to advance policies to protect our beautiful planet, further our clean energy and climate goals, boost the economy, and help communities thrive.
When others called it impossible, we led the campaign to make Hawaii the first U.S. state to set a mandate for 100% renewable energy. Since then, other states have followed our lead and taken their own action.
With almost two-thirds of our fossil fuel being used for transportation, we need cleaner, alternative modes to move people and goods.
We engaged 1,500 students to draw lines in chalk across Hawaii, illustrating the effect of a one-meter sea level rise on our coastal communities.
We traded more than 390 old, inefficient refrigerators on Molokai and Lanai for new, high-efficiency models, saving families $500 a year on their electricity bills.
We replaced more than 300,000 incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), saving $40 million statewide and displacing 190,000 barrels of oil.
We developed the world’s first energy efficiency crowdfunding platform that helps nonprofits decrease their carbon footprint and increase their capacities to serve our community.
We led the campaign to help Hawaii become the first state in the nation to set a 100% renewable energy mandate, paving the way for worldwide change.
We shaped and supported legislation that established the state's first standards for appliance efficiency, designed to help reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and save consumers money.
To catalyze the needed policy changes on clean energy and climate action, we launched the Climate Crew program for motivated high school students who are looking to fully engage in advocacy activities.
This bill requires state buildings over a certain size to perform cost-effective energy efficiency improvements. State buildings are one of the largest electricity users in Hawaii.
