Celebrity Supporters James & Suzy Amis Cameron, Maggie Grace,
Roland Emmerich, and More Join Global Green USA to Celebrate and Support
“Greener Cities for a Cooler Planet”
Performances by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Best Coast, and Portugal. The Man

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. More than 1400 people attended the
star-studded event featuring 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 Contest to benefit Muse Elementary
School. Also for the second year, Global Green USA featured the new Chevy Volt
electric vehicle with extended range.

Celebrity supporters in attendance included James & Suzy Amis Cameron, Maggie
Grace, Roland Emmerich, Alison Brie, Radha Mitchell, Dennis Haysbert, Enrique
Murciano, James Van Der Beek, Frances Fisher, Daphne Zuniga
, as well as Oscar
nominee Lucy Walker (Wasteland).

Celebrities walking the Green Carpet were some of the first to try The Carbon
City Index, a model carbon pollution index for the city of Los Angeles. The City
Carbon Index is envisioned to be similar to the Smog index, however, in addition
to grading Los Angeles on its efforts to reduce carbon emissions, Global Green
is launching a campaign for Angelenos (and citizens in cities across the
country) to advocate for smart climate policies within their own cities while
changing their own behavior to reduce carbon pollution. Since cities are
responsible for more than 70% of global warming emissions, cities are a critical
solution to our climate crisis and help promote the initiative to a global
audience.

Guests were treated to the official unveiling of the eco-friendly gown that won
Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet, Green Dress Competition. Samata Angel from
London, England won the competition and was recognized by Suzy and James Cameron
who also spoke about their passion for creating green schools and healthy
learning environments for kids.

While some celebrity guests were driven to the event in Chevy Volts, all
celebrity guests were treated to an up-close and personal look at the vehicle
alongside the green carpet. The Chevy Volt is an electric car that offers a
total driving range of up to 379 miles. With a full charge, the Chevy Volt can
provide between 25 – 50 miles of pure electric, emissions-free driving.
