Chicago's Climate Action Plan One Year Later

This interview with Chief Environment Officer Sadhu Johnston highlights the progress Chicago's already had, including 7 million square feet of green roofs and more bike lanes.

From the interview:

"I'm pleased with the progress we've made on implementing plans across all of our city departments and agencies. Our first year was really about planning and developing implementation plans for each of the sections in the action plan. We've just completed the transportation one and soon wrap up the renewable energy one. We now have road maps in each of those areas for things that we want to prioritize and proceed with in the near term and the longer term. It's just a lot of work -- hundreds of people across the city are helping us to put together the actual implementation plans for the broader strategy."
