In March, the City Council unanimously passed the 100% Renewable Energy resolution. Over the next few weeks the City of Savannah, Office of Sustainability will hold informational webinars on what you can do to help propel Savannah toward 100% green energy.
Join your Council Member for a virtual meeting to learn more about Savannah’s plan and how you can plug in!
To help the city understand the needs and interests of residents, the Office of Sustainability is asking that you fill out this quick survey — it will take no more than 5 minutes. You can take the survey before or after your district holds its webinar.

The Office of Sustainability provides services to promote a healthy environment and community lifestyle for citizens, encourage community engagement, provide operational cost savings through efficiency and compliance support, and conserve natural resources for current and future generations. With this directive, the primary objectives are to:
- Help develop sustainability initiatives that align with the City’s strategic plan
- Develop external funding and partnerships to support City sustainability goals
- Provide technical assistance on strategies to achieve cost savings through resource conservation and efficiency
- Develop and implement community education, outreach, and forums for stakeholder engagement
In 2007, City Council adopted The Green Roadmap, the sustainability plan for Chatham County, which will guide the City of Savannah’s sustainability goals. In 2016, we developed the Sustainability Assessment which includes a carbon inventory of incorporated City of Savannah and identifies strategies to reduce our carbon footprint and promote a more sustainable Savannah. It focuses on areas including water conservation, mobility, energy efficiency, green space and solid waste reduction.
