Sustainable New York City

This publication, created with the New York City Office of Environmental Coordination (OEC), affirms the City of New York's commitment to environmental sustainability and makes the case for integrating sustainable practices into everyday municipal operations. The document shows how New York and cities across the nation are creating innovative strategies for water conservation, energy efficiency, and waste management.

Case studies describe high- performance building programs in New York and Chicago, natural stormwater management systems in Staten Island and Seattle, environmentally preferable purchasing in Santa Monica, and a large-scale paper-reduction effort in New York. In addition, an extensive bibliography provides a valuable survey of current thinking on municipal sustainability.
