The Office of Sustainability gets its most direct input through two committees, one consisting of representatives of the City agencies most directly involved in sustainability work and the other consisting of community volunteers.
The Sustainability Implementation Committee (SIC) meets monthly to 1.) provide updates on current sustainability efforts within each agency, 2.) evaluate the effectiveness of citywide sustainability initiatives to achieve established targets, 3) recommend modifications of the City’s sustainability goals to the Mayor, as needed, 4) coordinate on sustainability initiatives and 5) make recommendations to the Office of Sustainability for improvements to policies or programs.
