Oakland County has recently become a leader in Michigan’s fight against climate change with the hiring of their first Environmental Sustainability Officer. The county has pledged to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 and has allocated an initial investment of $750,000 to fight climate change through the development of the Board of Commissioners approved Campus Sustainability Plan. This plan will provide a roadmap to more sustainable operations of county facilities, enhance and improve county buildings including energy efficiency and renewable energy integration, and ensuring that the campus is an equitable, and welcoming place to conduct government business.
The Campus Sustainability Plan will be released summer 2022. Check back for more details.
