Michigan Green Communities

Ann Arbor has been recognized for its environmental leadership by the statewide Michigan Green Communities program. As part of the annual Michigan Green Communities (MGC) Challenge, local governments were awarded bronze, silver or gold seals of achievement reflecting community leadership in areas such as energy efficiency, climate adaptation and resilience, recycling, environmental justice and more.

            Ann Arbor achieved gold status for exemplary action in multiple categories, including climate resilience, energy efficiency, renewable energy and materials management as part of implementing its ambitious A2ZERO Carbon Neutrality Plan, and made significant progress in the past year. The MGC sustainability networking, benchmarking and technical assistance program is open to all local governments in Michigan at no cost.
