Chicago has been focusing on reducing carbon emissions from municipal buildings, which represent 71% of the city’s emissions. In 2010, it reached 22% of its 2020 goal of reducing building emissions by 10%. Chicago also has become the second most bike friendly city through its bike-share program Divvy for Everyone, which offers low-income commuters a $5 annual fee and no usage fee if a bike is returned within a half hour.
