Chattanooga’s Office of Sustainability

REPORTING:  RABBIT ZIELKE

The City of Chattanooga established an Office of Sustainability to oversee the Green Initiative, administer the Climate Action Plan, and continue work that has helped make Chattanooga a leader in urban innovation. David Crockett is the Director of the department and is taking concepts from his professional experience to develop the decision process for this emerging department.  With a focus on quality and aspects of the Total Quality Management approach, Crockett intends to address decisions with an eye to the big picture and an understanding of the impact on other departments and programs.

The position of Director of  Sustainability was established through funds awarded from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant, which is part of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.   The department works through partnerships and community action committees to implement the Climate Action Plan that was developed in 2009.  To contact Green Chattanooga call 423-668-2262.
