Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson will welcome Tuesday San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom as the featured speaker for this month’s ‘Greenwise’ Initiative meeting.

Together, they will layout strategies for greening the Sacramento region.

Newsom will also discuss San Francisco’s best practices and some of the landmark policies the city has adopted to make it one of the greenest cities in the country.

Johnson launched ‘Greenwise’ in May in an effort to put the Sacramento region on the map as the greenest region in the country and the hub for green technology.

The purpose of the initiative is to convene leaders from the business, non-profits, academic, civic and governmental sectors in order to coordinate, align and leverage efforts regionally around a common vision and set sustainability goals focused on the environment, economy and education.
