Green Communities Certification

Last year, Council supported the pursuit of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Green Communities program which awards points for policies and practices that mitigate environmental impact. With 115 of the 175 points documented last year, for 2023, Council renewed its commitment to continuing the path towards Bronze level certification and reducing the City’s environmental impact, such as decreasing single-use plastic consumption, expanding the glass recycling program, exploring supporting internal recycling efforts, and continue evaluating City practices for sustainability opportunities, especially where the environmental impact has positive economic benefits.
