The Austin City Council passed Resolution 20140410-024, which established a long-term goal of becoming a net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions city by 2050. In other words, we want to reduce emissions to as close to zero as possible to ensure a cleaner, healthier, and safer community for decades to come. To do this, we need your help. Planning committees have identified five overarching strategy areas (listed as "Ideas" below), including related actions, for the materials management sector based on leading research, current city programs, and public input to date.
The Office of Sustainability needs your input regarding these draft strategies and actions.
