Environment more sustainable

Hartford has undertaken significant efforts to be one of the greenest cities in New England.  In 2018, we adopted an award-winning Climate Action Plan, and we have heard loud and clear that there’s more to do.  In this next City Plan, we have to continue our push to become a national leader in cleaning up our environment.  We must ensure that more people connect environmental stewardship with improving public health, advancing the economy, and promoting social equity.

We can’t reverse the last 400 years of environmental degradation.  But how can we best achieve a more sustainable future for Hartford?

Thank you for all of your ideas and proposals to address these issues.  We successfully adopted the plan in May 2020, after input from 2,200 people and more then 50 meetings!  Now we have to implement it!
