Sustainable Santa Barbara
The City of Santa Barbara is a dynamic work environment with a strong commitment to environmental sustainability. The City is taking many steps to reduce resource consumption and global warming emissions through its practices, facilities and vehicle fleet. Some of these efforts include:
- Employees are encouraged to ride a bicycle, walk, or carpool for work commutes and to run errands between City facilities. Employees receive a free bus pass and financial incentives to carpool or ride a commuter shuttle.
- Flexible schedules and telecommuting are promoted to reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions.
- The City uses recycled paper and conducts zero-waste events and meetings in which all products used (utensils, plates, napkins, etc.) are recyclable or biodegradable.
- The City uses B20 biodiesel fuel in City vehicles and, whenever available, purchases alternative fuel or hybrid vehicles.
- City facilities are equipped with the latest technology in water-saving devices and landscaped with water-wise plants.
- A Green Building Policy was adopted to curb energy consumption in new construction, major renovations, and building retrofits. Energy conservation and renewable energy are top priorities.
- The City has increased the use of online/electronic systems to decrease paper use.
- Tap water is used at City events instead of bottled water since bottled water wastes energy and resources through production of plastic bottles and energy used in the shipping process.
