Savannah Joins Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia

3 12 2008


The City of Savannah has become the first community in Georgia to receive designation as a Bronze Level Partner by the Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia, a state-sponsored voluntary environmental leadership initiative.

The designation was based on the strength of the City’s sustainability plan, called the Thrive Initiative which seeks to reduce the Savannah City government’s carbon footprint by 15 percent.

Becoming a Partner allows the city to access state resources, such as grant funding, to improve environmental efforts and help Savannah achieve its sustainability goal.

The Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia was created by the state in 2004 to foster environmental leadership and recognize superior environmental performance. Free and open to any business or organization in Georgia, it includes four Partnership levels to fit the changing goals and environmental initiatives of the participants.

As a Partner, the city will work to improve our current environmental efforts, identify potential cost saving measures, and set a standard for environmental excellence in Georgia.
