Welcome to Colma Green!
The Colma City Council’s commitment to sustainability was established prior to the development of its CAP. City Council adopted a Climate Action Plan (CAP) on May 8, 2013, to increase energy efficiency, water conservation and improve recycling for residents and businesses. Not only will new programs reduce greenhouse gas emissions, they also reduce costs and conserve natural resources.
Under Council’s leadership, the Town has been conducting business in a way that considers natural resources and environmental impacts. The Town policies, operations and projects reflect a genuine concern for the health of our community and planet. In February 2014, the Town has adopted a Sustainability Policy that can be seen here.
The three largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions are (1) energy (2) solid waste and (3) transportation. Under Council’s leadership, the Town has been conducting business in a way that considers natural resources and environmental impacts for many years. Town policies, operations and projects reflect a genuine concern for the health of our community and planet.
