Greenworks Philadelphia: A six year plan to help make Philadelphia the greenest city in America
About Greenworks

The Greenest City in America

That's the ambitious goal that Mayor Michael A. Nutter has set for Philadelphia. Reaching it will be an opportunity to reposition and repurpose Philadelphia as a city of the future. For the first time in decades, changes beyond our borders-primarily rising energy prices, but also climate change and an emerging green economy-are increasing the value of our urban assets. Philadelphia's dense and durable stock of housing, infrastructure and amenities position us to prosper in a carbon-constrained future.

With Greenworks Philadelphia as its guide, 21st century Philadelphia will face the challenges and opportunities created by recent global shifts and reposition itself as a city of the future.
