Vice Mayor Gates Statement Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Dec. 4, 2013

Bill Gates Headshot for News Releases"The City of Phoenix 2012 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory Comprehension Report was released yesterday. As a City, we have not only met, but have already exceeded our goal of reducing emissions five percent by 2015. I propose setting a new goal of reducing the city’s emissions 15 percent by 2015. This new goal will move Phoenix toward becoming a more sustainable city, ultimately saving taxpayer dollars and making Phoenix a better place to live. I invite our residents to attend the next meeting of the Finance, Efficiency, and Economy Subcommittee at Phoenix City Hall at 10 a.m. December 18, 2013 when we will be discussing this issue.”
