Dallas Wins Climate Protection Award




Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson

 

In June, the 87th annual meeting of the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM), held in Honolulu, presented the 2019 Mayor's Climate Protection Award to Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson on behalf of the city. It recognizes cities for their energy and climate protection efforts.

"Dallas has made tremendous strides over the past year in initiating climate planning and adopting a green energy policy that is both cost-conscious and innovative," says Johnson. "It is humbling to be recognized along with other cities like Los Angeles and New York, cities with large and diverse populations and geographical assets."

The 2019  Mayors Climate Summit delivers two key messages: there is no room for debate, the world is in the middle of a climate emergency. The Summit provides a forum for mayors across the U.S. to collaborate and share ideas, policies and practices to address climate change, as well as a unique opportunity for participants to form partnerships and explore ways to expand solutions and potential.
