About Sustainability

The Sustainability Office advances Albuquerque as a leader in equitable, long term environmental solutions.
Albuquerque's First Family.

We support City government and the community in reducing greenhouse gas emissions while growing our economy and protecting resident health. Our projects focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency, low-carbon transportation, and reducing waste. The Office is housed in the City’s Environmental Health Department

As a winner of the American Climate Cities Challenge, the Sustainability Team receives support to accomplish six bold goals to meet our emissions reduction targets as outlined in the Paris Climate Accord. Our work focuses on the building and transportation sectors, which account for 80 percent of our emissions. 

Thanks to support from our City leaders and residents, Albuquerque has already made some huge strides and achieved some major environmental goals.
