City of Coral Springs Dedicated to Zero Emissions by 2050

By Jonathan Schaefer

The Coral Springs commission announced a sustainability action plan to join the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign, a global strategy to lower carbon emissions to zero by the year 2050. 

“As leaders, we are doing our part to help create healthy and resilient communities worldwide,” said Coral Springs Commissioner Shawn Cerra. 

This plan will be a part of sustainability initiatives, including the Backyard Habitat Program, Green Building, Water Restrictions, Tree City USA, and Recycle Right. 

Vice Mayor Joshua Simmons explained that Coral Springs would take steps to reach net zero carbon emissions by increasing tree canopy coverage to 35% by 2025, increasing alternative and hybrid fuel vehicles in the city fleet, educating the community on sustainability practices, and performing feasibility studies across city-owned and operated buildings.
