Greensboro's Community Sustainability Council (CSC) was created by the City Council in January 2008 as an advisory group to City Council. Its mission is to research, advocate, coordinate, and provide outreach for local measures for these results:
- Reduce energy usage and carbon dioxide emissions
- Identify the costs of implementation and possible funding strategies
- Monitor the progress and effectiveness of measures adopted by the Greensboro City Council
Greensboro City Council accepted CSC's Sustainability Action Plan in January 2011.

Meetings -- The next CSC meeting will be a special "retreat" session, 2-6 pm November 16.
The group's meetings, which are open to the public, are normally scheduled for 3-5 pm on the second Monday of every other month in the Plaza Level Conference Room, Melvin Municipal Office Building (unless an alternate date, time, and/or location is announced). Note: November's meeting takes place Monday, November 16, not November 9.
In August 2007, the Greensboro City Council pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions when it voted to support the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement. This action officially made Greensboro one of this country's Cool Cities.
