Sustainable approaches to providing local government services help ensure a higher quality of life for future generations. Naperville’s sustainability successes largely have been achieved through partnerships with many organizations, businesses and residents. Through our willingness to pursue innovative sustainable solutions, the City has found cost efficiencies in line with our sound fiscal management philosophy.
In August 2021, the Naperville City Council approved a Sustainability Workplan. A collaborative effort between City staff and the Naperville Environment and Sustainability Task Force, the Workplan organizes and guides the City’s efforts toward a more sustainable and resilient Naperville.
