Sacramento City Manager John Shirey with Martin Gonzalez, Director of Institute for Local Government.

The City of Sacramento was recently recognized by the Institute for Local Government and the California League of Cities at their annual conference with a Beacon Spotlight Award for leadership in promoting sustainable practices that address climate change. The City received several awards recognizing our achievements in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and saving energy. Those awards include:

  • Silver Spotlight Award for 6% in Energy Savings
  • Silver Spotlight Award for 5% Community Greenhouse Gas Reduction
  • Platinum Spotlight Award for Sustainability Best Practice Activities

City staff continues to work towards completing the necessary six elements to achieve a full Beacon Award and, more importantly, creating a healthier and more vibrant community!
