Sustainable Saint Paul
Chris Coleman and the Saint Paul City Council are committed to making
Saint Paul “The Most Livable City in America” and a leader in

our city’s air, water, and urban landscape by focusing on Carbon Dioxide

conservation, clean energy supply, alternative fuels and transportation
options, recycling and waste reduction, urban reforestation and natural
