Last fall Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown and Councilman Jim Kenney proposed a Charter change to create a permanent Office of Sustainability. This proposal is a testament to the great sustainability work happening all across Philadelphia and to support from residents and businesses of our shared goals. As outlined in the 2013 Greenworks Progress Report, Philadelphia has made tremendous sustainability progress over the past five years, but we have much more work to do. The Charter change would be an important step toward keeping the momentum going strong!
