The City of Charlotte recognizes that environmental stewardship is fundamentally important to quality of life and essential to maintaining a vibrant economy. Protecting our natural resources, promoting conservation, and improving the environment all enhance the City’s mission to preserve the quality of life of its citizens. Charlotte will become a national leader in environmental sustainability by:
- Promoting and participating in the development of an environmentally sustainable community
- Leading by example by practicing environmental stewardship in City operations and facilities
- Seeking and supporting collaborative and regional solutions to environmental problems
- Facilitating the growth of the clean energy industry, including the alternative energy sector
Specific initiatives in the Economic Development and Transportation Focus Area Plans (FAP) relate directly to Charlotte’s environmental goals. The Economic Development FAP includes an initiative to grow and retain businesses in several industry sectors, including the energy/environmental sector. The Transportation FAP includes an initiative for enhancing multi-modal mobility, with measures such as reducing vehicle miles travelled and increasing access to public transit.
