FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Dec. 16, 2013

City releases sustainability report

Pioneering efforts save money and improve efficiency

Sustainability has been a core operating principle for the City of Kansas City, Mo., ever since the mayor and City Council passed the 2008 Climate Protection Plan. Now, the City has published a 20-page online sustainability report that looks back at the last five years and details how Kansas City has become recognized as a national leader on many environmental fronts, including alternative fuel fleets, whole-building energy monitoring systems, LEED gold and silver standards for new construction and an ambitious overflow control plan that uses large-scale green solutions.

“This report highlights Kansas City's national leadership on sustainability,” said Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo. “It underscores our continued commitment as a City to stay at the forefront when it comes to implementing sustainability practices."

City officials plan to update the report on a monthly basis as new accomplishments are announced that support three key goals of the Climate Protection Plan:

    • To improve the quality of our environment

    • To advance social equity

    • To promote economic vitality

The illustrated report also lists many local and regional organizations partnering with the City on sustainability projects.
