Silicon Valley Environmental Partnership

The Silicon Valley Environmental Partnership (SVEP) is an Initiative launched by Joint Venture: Silicon Valley Network. A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1993, SVEP promotes environmentally sound business and community practices through collaboration and education. Our vision for Silicon Valley is a sustainable community with a vibrant economy and a healthy environment. We focus on efforts that bridge the traditional "tension" between the environment versus the economy, demonstrating that both goals can be achieved in a mutually supportive fashion to move our community toward sustainable development.
