The City of Miami Beach is taking steps to address growing concerns regarding environmental impacts and changes in the community. The City's Sustainability Committee was formed in July 2007, which provided a community forum to discuss environmental issues within the city. In 2008, the City Commission added a new Key Intended Outcome (KIO) to the City's Strategic Plan to enhance the environmental sustainability of the community. Then in the spring of 2009, the City permanently established the Sustainability Committee and codified Chapter 100: Sustainability in the City Code, which is dedicated to sustainable initiatives.
The role of the Miami Beach Sustainability Committee is to identify and promote policies and practices within the City to help achieve a sustainable environment. We encourage environmental awareness among our residents, employees and business partners to help accomplish our goal of keeping Miami Beach green.
