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.
