The mission of the Office of Environmental Quality is to lead Cincinnati City Government and the larger community toward sustainability and the practice of good environmental stewardship. The Office of Environmental Quality is active in air quality, brownfield redevelopment, climate protection, energy management, environmental compliance, environmental justice, green roof loans and recycling.

350.org is building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis. Their online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organizers in over 188 countries. To preserve our planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million to below 350 ppm. But 350 is more than a number—it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.
