Celebrate Drive Electric Week at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society
Join us at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society to kick off National Drive Electric Week with the City of West Palm Beach, Mayor's Office of Sustainability! Learn all about electric vehicles from our EV experts, find out ways to reduce your carbon footprint, and save wildlife.
The City of West Palm Beach has committed to the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, the world's largest cooperative effort among mayors and city officials to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, track progress, and prepare for the impacts of climate change.
In 2016, the City of West Palm Beach updated our community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory. Following that, Mayor Muoio established a long range (2050) net zero GHG reduction target for the city. Net zero emissions means that the quantity of greenhouse gases emitted is in balance with the quantity sequestered or offset. With transportation being one of our biggest GHG emitters, we encourage the use of electric vehicles.
Electric vehicles are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Are you considering going electric? Come talk to owners who have successfully done so.
