Committee on Environmental Protection and Energy

Alderwoman Hadden was appointed as the Chairperson of the Committee on Environmental Protection and Energy for the 2023-2027 term. In this leadership role, she looks forward to building off of the foundation from her first term in office, where she successfully passed legislation to have the City Treasurer divest from fossil fuels, called to re-establish the Department of Environment, and amended our heating and cooling ordinances to respond to changing weather patterns caused by climate change. As chairperson, she will continue to explore how we can reduce Chicago's carbon footprint through a clean buildings plan, revisit the ComEd franchise agreement, and work closely with communities and advocates on environmental justice issues.
