As of January 1, 2012, the Department of Environment no longer exists as a standalone unit. The integrated model that replaces it is critical to incorporate sustainability so that it is a part of every policy decision and capital investment. Starting in 2012, each department and sister agency will be engaged in creating a more sustainable Chicago.
