Climate Stewardship and Sustainability Climate Stewardship and Sustainability


In 2017, Mayor Luke Bronin established the City of Hartford Office of Sustainability to advance our economy, improve public health, and promote social equity through environmental stewardship initiatives. Sustainability Coordinator Shubhada Kambli leads the Office. She is joined by Green Infrastructure Assistant Grace Yi, and two UConn interns, Kartik Dubey and Wanjiku Gatheru. Together, they collaborate closely with other city agencies, including the Department of Public Works, the Department of Development Services, and Hartford Public Schools, as well as other community partners.

The Office works with the City’s Climate Stewardship Council, which is the city’s sustainability task force, to lead Climate Stewardship Initiative. The Council's 30 members include representatives of neighborhood associations, nonprofit institutions, regional and state governmental agencies, private businesses, and educational institutions. The success of Hartford’s Climate Stewardship Initiative depends on individuals like you working together to make Hartford a global leader in environmental stewardship.

The Office is funded exclusively by the generous support of the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, Partners for Places, and UConn's Connecticut Institute for Resilience and Climate Adaptation.
