Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve, the Reno City Council and staff have committed to a worldwide initiative called Compact of Mayors. This global coalition entails city officials pledging to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions, enhance resilience and track progress transparently.
“The City of Reno’s commitment to the Compact of Mayors shows that we’re serious about our global environmental responsibility,” Schieve said. “This is an important first step for us as we set out to quantify where our city stands, and how we can improve, on this crucial initiative. We want to hold ourselves accountable along with the many other cities that are participating.”
“The City of Reno has been at the forefront of sustainability with aggressive efficiency programs and adoption of renewable energy,” said Councilmember David Bobzien. “We will continue to work closely with our local transportation and utility providers to improve efficiencies and reduce our overall resource impact.”
