To create a more sustainable Cleveland, focus on equity, summit leaders say

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, calling these “not normal” times, opened the 12th city-run Sustainability Summit from his desktop computer rather than the podium of Public Auditorium. The mayor, who initiated the annual event in 2009 and has long insisted the formation of his Sustainability Office isn’t about the environment so much as a focus on green jobs, called on the environmental community to embrace social equity.
