Newark Sustainability

The City of Newark is staffing up to tackle environmental health and quality of life issues. The new Chief Sustainability Officer, Nathaly Agosto Filión, will work with representatives from various municipal departments, the Environmental Commission, and members of the Newark community to advance a multi-pronged agenda aimed at making Newark a healthier and greener city.      

“All of Newark’s children should grow up in an environment that nurtures them. This means getting dangerous toxins out of our neighborhoods, and making sure families have access to the same environmental assets that their suburban counterparts enjoy – parks, playgrounds, trees, healthy food, affordable energy bills, working water infrastructure, and green job opportunities,” said Mayor Baraka.

The Office of Sustainability will work to strengthen partnerships with State, Federal and local agencies as well as community stakeholders and continue to advance the goals laid out in the Newark Sustainability Action Plan. Please Join a Community Conversation on Building a Greener, Cleaner and Healthier Newark!
