Office of Sustainability


KatherineLawrenceJersey City’s Office of Sustainability oversees the City’s sustainability efforts across a variety of departments and sectors, including the 2018 Year of Energy campaign. The Office coordinates across departments to improve the City’s sustainability practices, research and implement new community sustainability policies, develop action plans for meeting the City’s climate sustainability goals, and interface with the community to raise awareness of sustainable practices and sustainability resources.

Following the Year of Water in 2017, the City of Jersey City declared 2018 to be its Year of Energy, a city-wide, cross-sector and cross-departmental effort managed by the Office of Sustainability. This is an opportunity for the City and its residents to focus on energy-related issues and projects for a sustained time period in order to ensure lasting impact. Over the course of the year there will be a number of different initiatives at both the municipal and community level. Please check out for more information on upcoming activities and initiatives related to the Year of Energy and the Office of Sustainability.
