Schaumburg has committed to many sustainability initiatives, including:

Guide1Shadow_6Comprehensive Green Action Plan (C GAP)

  • In 2008 the village approved the Comprehensive Green Action Plan (C GAP) to expand and build upon over thirty programs, policies, and ordinances that are already in place.

  • C GAP focuses on programs and policies that will strengthen the village’s commitment to the environment and provides clear, organized direction and expectations for staff and the community.

  • The implementation of C GAP will bring the village closer to meeting the recommended actions established in the U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, and will signify Schaumburg as leader in environmental stewardship.
