Government Operations Workgroup


The County is working hard to ensure that energy is being saved and pollution is at a minimum. In 2007 the Environmental Protection and Growth Management Division created the Broward Climate Change Government Operations Workgroup (pdf, 233 kb)  that includes representatives from many county agencies and is organized into committees in the areas of emissions inventory, buildings/infrastructure, waste reduction/recycling, transportation, natural systems and green policies.

The Workgroup is tasked with reducing Broward County Government greenhouse gas emissions seven percent below baseline 1997 levels by the year 2015 . Below is a graphical representation of Broward County’s greenhouse gas emissions from government operations, showing a snapshot of 2012 data.
