Partnership in the Monterey Bay Regional Climate Action Compact is open to all government agencies, educational institutions, private businesses, non-profit, and non-governmental organizations in the region. Current partners are listed below.

Member organizations who join the Climate Action Compact are committing to participate in regular Advisory Group meetings and cooperate to further the agreed upon objectives and common goals of partner organizations using existing staff and available resources. This sort of cross-sector, regional collective action will allow each member organization to realize maximum benefit with minimal drain on resources while providing the most cost-effective approach to meeting common voluntary and regulatory climate action goals.
