September is “Planting For Monarchs Month”!​ 

Did you know that Phoenix plays host to the migrating monarch butterfly each year? We see them arrive in September and wave goodbye around May as they make their way to cooler climates for the summer. 

September is the perfect time to start thinking about what native plants you could place on your patio, balcony, or plant in your yard to provide essential habitat resources for this key pollinator species. 

Working together, we can create a web of much needed habitat resources throughout Phoenix for this important species.​ 

What are YOU doing to celebrate Planting for Monarchs Month? Follow along and tag us using #PlanningForMonarchs at @PHXenvironment on Twitter!

​2020 GHG Inventories Now Available

​The City of Phoenix's 2020 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Inventory shows both community scale and government operations emissions decreased during that year.

Overall, 2020 community-wide GHG emissions were 14% lower than the 2012 baseline, while the metro economy grew by 42% and the City's population increased by 12%. 

In government operations, Phoenix 2020 GHG emissions were 25% lower than the 2005 baseline – well on their way to meeting the 2025 goal of a 40% reduction from 2005. 

In 2021, the City of Phoenix's Climate Action Plan laid out another ambitious goal of reducing community carbon emissions from buildings, transportation, and waste by 50% by 2030, thereby moving toward becoming a carbon neutral city by 2050.​​​
