Launched in 2007, the Green Works Orlando initiative reflects Mayor Buddy Dyer’s commitment to sustainability and his goals to enhance quality of life and wellbeing, generate diverse economic growth, and create equitable access to resources and services for the entire Orlando community. Mayor Dyer also assembled the city’s first Office of Sustainability & Resilience to implement the Green Works Orlando initiative by coordinating with city departments and community stakeholders to ensure the effectiveness of immediate and long-term sustainability planning efforts. Some of the earlier success of Green Works Orlando also included the development of a “Sustainability” chapter in the city’s Municipal Code.
