2011 Sustainability Report
On April 22, 2011 (Earth Day), the City of Des Plaines completed its first-ever Sustainability Report. A collaborative effort between City staff, elected officials and community representatives, the report details projects Des Plaines has undertaken over the past decade to reduce its environmental impact, explores best practices for new opportunities, and identifies the targets that will bring the City to its goal of reducing GHG emissions.

Funding for the report was provided by a grant from the US Department of Energy, the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG), issued in 2009 under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Thanks to the work Des Plaines has undertaken through this grant, the City has received other benefits, including free energy audits of the City Hall and Public Works facilities.
