Message from the Mayor

In the fall of 2006, Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt developed the Sustainable Greater Green Bay Initiative, which brought together business leaders, government officials, non-profit organizations and citizens  committed to making greater Green Bay a more vibrant, resource-efficient and sustainable community. 

The Mayor charged the group with formulating concrete, achievable initiatives that would bring real, visible results in creating a sustainable environment, economy, and lifestyle for the citizens of greater Green Bay.  Focusing on water and air quality, transportation, energy, and land use, the Sustainable Greater Green Bay Task Force has achieved a remarkable number of successes in a short period of time, including the CFL Corporate Challenge, effluent disposal drives, rain barrel workshops, and the Green Bike initiative.
