The Washington BlueGreen Apollo Alliance played a major role in Washington in securing passage of the 2007 Climate Action Green Jobs bill and the 2008 Climate Action and Green Jobs bill. Both of these pieces of legislation created opportunities for investment in the development of Washington’s clean energy sector, and the Washington BlueGreen Apollo Alliance brought together environment, businesses and labor voice in support of their passage.
Representatives of the Washington BlueGreen Alliance also advise a number of state and local government panels including the Washington 2008 Climate Action Team’s Implementation Working Group for energy efficiency and Green Buildings and the Seattle/King Country Workforce Development Counsil Skill Panel on Green construction and Green Building Design.
