Focus Areas

Environment focus area

“Charlotte will become a global leader in environmental sustainability, balancing economic growth, while preserving our natural resources. “

Given fast-tracked growth, Charlotte’s environment team seeks to balance economic prosperity with protection of natural resources. We continue to explore efficiencies that will streamline the city’s efforts with those of the community groups who are working to manage solid waste, energy, water and air. We lead by example in our efforts to protect the environment and we promote the advancement of Charlotte as a SMART city, through consistent data-driven and environmentally conscious decisions in areas such as energy, water, waste, and transportation. The City of Charlotte will:

  • Lead by example with environmentally friendly city operations
  • Protect water quality
  • Protect air quality
  • Reduce and recycle waste
  • Protect trees/urban forestry
  • Use data and technology to protect natural resources
  • Expand economic success for everyone

Environment as a council priority
