About Next 10
Next 10 is focused on inno­va­tion and the inter­sec­tion between the econ­omy, the envi­ron­ment, and qual­ity of life issues for all Cal­i­for­ni­ans. Our work is divided into a few key areas: expert-​​commissioned research, civic engage­ment tools and events, and stake­holder con­ven­ings. Our most recently pub­lished report, the ninth annual Cal­i­for­nia Green Inno­va­tion Index, high­lighted the grow­ing chal­lenge CA faces as a result of increas­ing trans­porta­tion emis­sions in the state.

Among the many Next10 efforts they publish

The Green Inno­va­tion Index

California’s clean econ­omy sec­tor is diver­si­fy­ing and advanc­ing accord­ing to new data high­lighted in the 2016 Cal­i­for­nia Green Inno­va­tion Index. Next 10’s eighth edi­tion of the Cal­i­for­nia Green Inno­va­tion Index, for the first time, ana­lyzes and ranks the Golden State’s eco­nomic and energy per­for­mance in com­par­i­son to the world’s 50 largest green­house gas (GHG) emit­ting nations, in addi­tion to com­par­ing 26 regions within Cal­i­for­nia. The Index reveals new data about clean tech patents, invest­ment lev­els, energy pro­duc­tiv­ity lev­els, state GDP rel­a­tive to green­house gas emis­sions, California’s clean econ­omy jobs and more. The 2015 edi­tion of this research can be found at http://​nex​t10​.org/​i​n​t​e​r​n​a​t​i​o​nal.
