SAN ANTONIO - Bloomberg Philanthropies announced San Antonio as a winning city in the Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge.
City leaders say San Antonio was selected because of our innovative and ambitious climate action plans to reduce air pollution and city-wide emissions.
"Economic growth is much easier when you work on climate change, if you talk to companies, they want to be environmentally friendly because their investors are demanding they're environmentally friendly," Michael Bloomberg said.
The Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge is a $70 billion program, accelerating 25 cities efforts to tackle climate change and promote a sustainable future for residents.
City leaders say they'll use the support to help implement the SA Climate Ready Plan.
