Guided by the current Sustainability Action Plan adopted by City Council in November 2016, the City of Louisville continuously works towards a more sustainable future for both the natural environment and the community.
In August 2019, Louisville's City Council advanced its commitment to a healthy and sustainable community by unanimously voting to adopt Resolution 25-2019 Setting Clean Energy and Carbon Emission Reduction Goals.
2020 Sustainability Survey Results
For the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the City of Louisville ran an Informal survey via the EngageLouisville platform focused on sustainability programs, events and initiatives in the community to gather feedback. During this time, 175 participants responded. The results are not statistically significant and should not be used conclusively, however they provide an important feedback loop for City programs and communications.
Result highlights from the survey can be found here, while full results can be found at engagelouisvilleco.org/sustainability.
