Who are we?

OrangeGoesGreen (OGG) is a public-private partnership between North America and the Netherlands, operating at the nexus of food, energy and water. Although deeply rooted in the Netherlands, OGG is a San Francisco based 501(C) (3) not-for-profit organization.

Our organization builds upon the core Dutch strengths of integrated solutions that can solve the complex challenges we face today as an urbanized society. The inspiration for OGG lies in the Sustainable Urban Delta movement..

Resiliency

According to the World Health Organization, today over 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas. These ever-expanding urbanized regions must provide for resilient, safe, healthy and prosperous communities. Current conditions of global climate change have affected the State of California significantly with persistent drought, increasing flood risk and storm surges. Therefore it is crucial to ensure that both the near and the long-term future are sustainable and resilient, for California’s people, its natural riches, its continued agricultural production and its creative and innovative economy.

The Dutch have a long history with planning, building and sustaining resilient communities. We can’t wait to contribute to the efforts to plan for California’s future by acting now.

The question is how food availability and quality for all can be guaranteed in light of the critical need for significant water conservation. Adapting, innovating and experimenting are ways to get there.

The Dutch are leaders in researching and implementing Climate Smart Agriculture solutions to secure crop production while enabling lower demand for precious resources.
