Amelia Schmale


I’m a program manager with an energy efficiency firm in Berkeley with a background in urban and environmental policy and planning. I’m interested in local government action on climate change, environmental justice, and green jobs.

Green Steps Taken

I became a vegetarian 6 years ago, walk to work, try to buy used and organic, and chose my education and my career based on my desire to work in a field that promotes sustainability.

Having Trouble With

I think the most difficult thing for me right now about trying to lead a sustainable life is loving to travel but hating the carbon impact of flying.

Giving Back

I’m new to the area and would love to be more involved in the community. The company I work for has sustainable purchasing policies and supports the Contra Costa County Climate Leaders organization.
