Central Houston, Inc. has worked to make downtown Houston one of the most sustainable downtowns in the country, with collaboration and cooperation among a wide array of companies, properties and organizations. Many plans have been developed, implemented and completed, but we continue to focus on actions that will have the most leverage in increasing sustainability.
