CITY OF TUCSON AND THRIVE IN THE 05 RECOGNIZED AS 2021 ‘GO GREEN AWARD’ RECIPIENTS (VIDEOS) – Tucson Electric Power’s (TEP) Go Green Awards are presented annually to highlight the meaningful work of local businesses and organizations that protect our environment, preserve natural resources, and promote sustainability in some way in our community. The City of Tucson was awarded the Conservation Partner Award for its ongoing commitment to decarbonization in response to climate change. Examples of this commitment are Tucson Mayor Regina Romero’s goal of planting 1 million trees, the City’s efforts toward making Tucson’s only active landfill a “zero waste” sustainability campus, transit electrification, and Green Stormwater Infrastructure. Thrive in the 05, a City of Tucson collaborative in partnership with ASU’s Office of Community Health, Engagement, and Resiliency (OCHER) and Pima Community College, received the Community Partner Award for their efforts to make neighborhoods in the Oracle Road/Miracle Mile area a safe and flourishing community while highlighting the area’s unique treasures and supporting revitalization.
