Los Angeles, CA (February 23, 2011) - Global Green USA celebrated its 8th Annual Pre-Oscar® party on Wednesday night at the Avalon Hollywood, raising funds and awareness for Global Green’s national initiatives to fight climate change. The star-studded event featured musical performances by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Best Coast, and Portugal. The Man. “Greener Cities for a Cooler Planet” was the theme of the evening which benefited Global Green’s initiatives to promote smart solutions to climate change by creating healthy, green communities. 

Global Green also unveiled their Model Carbon City Index tool, a first of its kind Web tool designed to benchmark cities efforts to reduce carbon emissions and motivate citizens to advocate for smart climate policies at the local level.

“Cities account for 70% of carbon emissions worldwide. The Carbon City Index will create an engaged group of activists that hold public officials accountable for their city’s carbon emissions and drive lasting and impactful greenhouse gas policy changes across the U.S.,” said Matt Petersen, Global Green’s President and CEO.

For the second year in a row, Suzy Amis Cameron  unveiled the winning green dress design as part of her Red Carpet Green Dress initiative.
