The City of Newark Sustainability Action Plan was published in 2013, and lays out strategies for making Newark’s environment a positive force in the life of the City. In it, the City of Newark commits to pursuing the vision of a healthy, green, vibrant city by promoting environmental, social, and economic well-being over the long-term.
Today, nearly five years later, the City of Newark is facing a new set of challenges—and has the chance to take advantage of new opportunities. The City has leveraged state and federal resources and organizational partnerships to promote energy efficiency, boost recycling, plant trees, increase urban farming, reduce air pollution, clean up brownfields, and more. The Sustainability Action Plan update process will build on all the work that has been done to date, laying out a work plan for how City departments, partner agencies, local organizations and committed residents can work together to move Newark’s sustainability agenda forward over the coming years.
