Sustainability_Award2023

The City of Frederick is proud to be recognized with the 2023 Leadership Award by the Maryland Green Registry, for its unwavering commitment to our environment.

The Leadership Award is presented to organizations that have shown a strong commitment to the implementation of sustainable practices, the demonstration of measurable results, and the continual improvement of environmental performance. The City is being recognized for . Over the past few years, the city has reached a number of sustainability milestones including the adoption and ongoing implementation of its Climate Action Plan. A feature of this plan is the launch of a residential compost pilot project that is presently diverting nearly 5 tons of material each month to organics recovery rather than the landfill.

"In embracing sustainability, we shape a thriving future for the City of Frederick, " said Mayor Michael O'Connor. "By cherishing our natural spaces and nurturing our communities, we leave a legacy of prosperity for generations to come."

Maryland Green Registry Leadership Award winners represent a variety of facility types and sizes, but all have several key factors in common that contribute to their success: an organization-wide commitment to environmental performance, a green team that meets on a regular basis, annual environmental goals, and measurement of results.
