The combined building and energy sectors account for the highest percentage of GHG emissions in Dallas (64%). In FY 23-24, 11 actions from this sector will be initiated, with 25 identified milestones. These actions include expansion of existing programs and efforts, as well as updates to existing codes and ordinances. Implementation of these milestones will involve collaboration between the following City departments:

  • Aviation

  • Development Services

  • Economic Development

  • Environmental Quality & Sustainability 

  • Planning & Urban Design

  • Housing & Neighborhood Revitalization 

Note: Actions marked as ongoing span multiple fiscal years, meaning efforts will be carried out continuously and therefore will not be marked complete until the end of this fiscal year.
