City Sustainability

In 2009, the City of Helena Commission adopted a Climate Action Plan to shape the City's sustainability efforts. The Climate Action Plan provided recommendations into four categories:

1. Implementation
2. Energy
3. Water
4. Transportation, Waste, Recycling, and Public-Private Partnership

The Climate Action Plan has inspired a long list of environmentally conscious initiatives throughout the City, including the creation of a Sustainability Coordinator position. Please contact the Sustainability Coordinator with any questions related to the City of Helena's sustainability efforts.
