Largo is Ready for 100% Renewable Energy
Largo recently became the fourth city in Florida and the 75th in the country to commit to a transition to 100 percent renewable energy for our organization and the community.
In support of Largo’s strategic focus on sustainability, Largo City Commission recently voted to approve an organizational commitment to achieving 100 percent renewable, zero-emission energy by 2035. Largo’s commitment also includes supporting a community-wide transition to 100 renewable energy through stakeholder engagement and encouraging benefits for the most vulnerable in our community.
The City of Largo is Going Plastic Free!
The City of Largo is committed to developing and implementing initiatives that promote local environmental, economic, and sustainability practices. As single-use plastics are common pollutants that pose health and environmental risks to wildlife, and litter streets, parks, and public spaces, the City passed Ordinance 2019-19 to prevent the distribution and use of #5 (polypropylene) and #6 (polystyrene) food service materials on City property including the use of plastic straws and polystyrene foam products. This includes at events on City property, by vendors and contractors operating on City property, and by City funds. Visit Largo.com/PlasticFree for more details.
