About Us » Corridor Profile
Home to UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and a highly educated and entrepreneurial workforce, the East Bay Green Corridor is poised to lead California in the emerging clean technology economy.
The Green Corridor represents a commitment to build upon the region’s existing strength as a center for emerging green technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.
Established in 2007 by UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the cities of Berkeley, Oakland, Richmond and Emeryville, the Corridor expanded in 2009 to include the cities of Alameda, Albany, El Cerrito and San Leandro; California State University East Bay and Peralta Community College District; and in 2012, added the city of Hayward. This has put the structure in place for broad regional collaboration.
