Phoenix Remains as an A List City by CDP for 2023​​​​

Phoenix has been recognized by Carb​on Dis​closure Project (CDP) as one of 119 cities across the globe that is taking bold leadership on environmental action and transparency. Thanks to the enviro​nmental efforts implemented by Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and the City, Phoenix received an A score.​​

Phoenix is a leader in addressing climate challenges. Some examples include the City’s work to install 220 new shade structures at bus stops, winning the 2023 Top Green Fleet Award from the National Association of Fleet Administrators for work in transitioning fleet vehicles to electric and installing over 100 miles of Cool Pavement to reduce the urban heat island effect. ​

Phoenix joins 118 other cities on this year’s A-List that are being recognized for their urgent and impactful climate action - from ambitious emissions reduction targets to building resilience against climate change.​

September is Planting for Monarchs Month

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.​

Phoenix declares September “Planting For Monarchs Month”!


Photograph by Kim Pegram, Desert Botanical Garden

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego has issued a Proclamation declaring September as “Planting for Monarchs Month”. 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. 

View the Proclamation / Lea la Proclamación

The western population of the monarch butterfly has declined by 99 percent over the last 25 years, primarily due to habitat loss, climate change, and pesticide use. Mayor Gallego is calling for all Phoenicians to work together to plant native milkweed and native nectar plants to support the monarch butterfly. Working together, the habitat we each plant - no matter how small - can combine to create big change!

These trees represent our commitment to shade equity and climate resilience, ensuring that every resident enjoys the benefits of a greener, cooler, and more inviting environment," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego.</p> <p>Last fall, the Office of Heat Response and Mitigation launched its Community Canopy grant program which offers free trees and tree planting support for residents and neighborhoods in <a href="https://www.huduser.gov/portal/sadda/sadda_qct.html" target="_blank">Qualified Census Tracts (QCTs)</a>. </p> <p>"I am incredibly proud to represent such a vibrant and engaged community," Councilwoman Laura Pastor said. “It brings me great joy to see so many of my constituents taking advantage of the Community Canopy grant program, as it not only beautifies our neighborhoods but also has numerous environmental benefits."</p> <p>Trees for the tree planting are being supplied by <a href="https://www.treeland.com/" target="_blank">Treeland Nurseries</a> and contractor <a href="https://westcoastarborists.com/" target="_blank">West Coast Arborists</a> will plant trees for grant recipients. In addition, each resident will receive a supply bag equipped with an irrigation timer, a moisture meter, a 100-foot hose, two t-shirts as well as information on their trees and how to care for them. </p> <p>“The goal of these tree plantings is to provide more shade to homes in Phoenix neighborhoods as well as bring communities together. A lot of these residents are meeting their neighbors for the first time," says Urban Tree Project Manager Lora Martens. “These tree plantings in front line communities, are truly improving the tree equity gap in our city." </p> <p>The grant program is funded through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and <a href="https://phoenix-gov.formstack.com/forms/community_canopy_grant_application" target="_blank">applications</a> for the Community Canopy grant program are still being accepted.
