WAWA Highlighted in 2010 City of Atlanta Sustainability Plan
Atlanta Mayor Kasim and the City of Atlanta Division of Sustainability recently released the 2010 City of Atlanta Sustainability Plan to chart a course for efforts to make Atlanta one of the top 10 sustainable cities in the United States. The plan lists sustainability goals in the following areas: transportation, fleet fuels, climate change, water conservation, water quality, air quality, waste, greenspace, energy, and local food systems. Also included in the plan are a 2010 Atlanta Sustainability Inventory, current sustainability rankings, highlights of best practices research from peer cities, and an action plan to move Atlanta to the top tier of U.S. Cities.

WAWA was also previously featured in the 2008-2009 Sustainability Report for Atlanta, Our Path to Sustainability, for its pioneering work to save over 400 acres of greenspace in Southwest Atlanta, its success in leading a citizen-centered process to develop SW Atlanta’s Hampton-Beecher Park, and its efforts to educate youth and other West Atlanta residents about environmental stewardship and sustainable practices.
