As the United States heads toward the hottest year on record, some of the country’s greenest cities are turning green.
Here are 10 of the most green cities in the country.
Denver, CO (0.75% CO2) The Mile High City is among the greenest major cities in America, according to data from the Environmental Protection Agency.
It has achieved the highest CO2 emissions per capita since 2009, according a recent report.
That’s despite being the second-highest CO2 emitter in the nation behind Seattle, where it’s currently at 5.8%.
Denver also has the third-lowest average temperature in the U.N. database, which measures air pollution at 37 degrees below the 20th percentile.
The city is among a handful of major U. S. cities to make the top 20 in CO2 emission per capita.
Denver is home to a variety of environmentally friendly projects and initiatives, including a $40 million green infrastructure fund and a partnership with the city’s public transit system to bring light rail service to the area.
Miami, FL (0) Miami is home of some of Florida’s most diverse and environmentally friendly neighborhoods.

The board also serves as a hub for community groups and businesses to promote green development, like the Miami Heat Foundation.
Seattle, WA (0%) In 2016, Seattle became the second largest city in the United Kingdom to reduce CO2 pollution, according the British Environment Agency.
This was thanks to a new, environmentally friendly way of shipping waste that the city has embraced, including an emissions-reducing plant that converts waste into electricity.
“The new plant is part of a new program to convert waste from the city of Seattle to a low-carbon source of electricity that can be generated and used by the city and the public,” said Sarah Fong, the city administrator.
The plant was recently certified as CO2-free, and the city is now building on its success to make CO2 reduction even more efficient.
Denver (0% CO) Denver is one of the more green cities nationwide.
Its residents and businesses have been taking steps to make their neighborhoods greener.
The City of Denver has invested in green technology, including planting a rain garden and installing solar panels.

New York City, NY (0 percent CO2/person) NYC is the second most green city in America after Boston.
Its efforts to reduce emissions have been lauded by the U,S.

The mayor of the City of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, has called on the city to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
The Chicago city government has also partnered with the nonprofit Climate Action Alliance to set up a new greenhouse gas-reduction plant, dubbed the Green City Project.
The new plant will reduce CO 2 emissions by 60 percent compared to the city average by 2030 and by 70 percent compared with the average by 2020.
Seattle (0/0) Seattle has been known for its green initiatives for a long time.
