The mission of the Highly EVolved campaign is to educate the public on the benefits and realities of electric vehicles.
The campaign is a collaborative partnership with various stakeholders to create a more resilient future for Indianapolis. It has been created in conjunction with the Thrive Indianapolis Plan to chart a course for an Indianapolis that is equitable, healthier, and prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.
The Office of Sustainability, also known as SustainIndy, uses best practices in sustainability to enhance the quality of life for all residents in Indianapolis and Marion County. As a division of the Deparment of Public Works, the Office of Sustainability promotes an environmentally sustainable city through different programs and initiatives. Some initiatives improve issues such as air quality and stormwater management, as well as energy efficiency and environmental planning.
Knozone is an initiative to make Central Indiana one of the Midwest’s most sustainable, livable regions.

Launched in 2018, the American Cities Climate Challenge provides powerful resources and support to 25 U.S. mayors as they accelerate climate action, using a holistic approach that focuses on clean buildings and transportation.
Participating cities are scaling and implementing climate solutions to help grow the economy, protect public health, and upgrade city infrastructure to meet the needs of the 21st century. Each winning city received a unique package of support, including additional staff capacity, technical assistance from world class partners, access to intensive peer-to-peer networking and support in launching communications, outreach and education campaigns. In total, actions from the Climate Challenge are projected to reduce emissions by 40 million metric tons – the equivalent of taking 8.5 million cars off the road.
