The City of El Paso Office of Sustainability was established in 2007 to develop, coordinate, and support city-wide sustainability goals and initiatives. 

This office helps foster a culture of sustainability by supporting residents, businesses, and community organizations reduce their waste, decrease their energy usage, and overall lead more sustainable lives.

Ultimately, we are looking to efficiently preserve our resources while saving taxpayer dollars.

In December 2013, El Paso was selected to join the 100 Resilient Cities Network and was given direct funding to hire a Chief Resilience Officer. With this new direction and support, the Office of Resilience and Sustainability was formed in December 2014, built on the strong foundation of the Office of Sustainability.
