Welcome to the phoenix.gov/sustainability to view the plans that will help Phoenix become the most sustainable desert city on the planet. With ambitious goals of zero carbon, zero waste, clean air, a 100-year water supply and parks and transit in every neighborhood (and near-term goals of a 50% reduction in carbon by 2030), Phoenix is investing in infrastructure to achieve its vision. In the last 7 years, Phoenix has spent over $700M in sustainability projects including:
- $25M biogas facility
- $15M state-of-the-art compost facility
- $18M in hydrogen and electric buses
- $30M LED streetlight project
- $530M in transit investments providing extended bus operating hours and frequency
In addition to these recent investments, many new projects are underway for 2030:

- 200 new electric vehicles as part of the City fleet
- Dozens of new solar projects at city facilities to reach 30MW of new solar
- Lightrail extensions to the south, west and north Phoenix
- and 100 Miles of cool pavement.
