Philadelphia has made great progress toward becoming a more sustainable city, but that progress has not happened at the same pace in every neighborhood. To ensure Philadelphians in every zip code enjoy the benefits of sustainability, the City of Philadelphia will launch the Greenworks Equity Index in Spring 2017.
The index will use data to identify areas where Philadelphians aren’t benefitting from sustainability. City agencies, non-profit organizations, and community members will design specific projects in those areas to improve outcomes. Partners will then expand successful projects to bring improvements to other communities. Check back soon for updates on the progress of this new program.
