Where does Atlanta land on list of greenest cities?

by Patrick Regan

Atlanta is the No. 22 greenest city in the U.S., according to a new study from insurance company battleface.

The travel insurance provider reviewed “cities of all sizes and in regions across the nation” to determine the 50 greenest communities in the U.S. It measured cities in five categories: Sustainable transportation options, access to parks and greenspace, carbon emissions, electric vehicle infrastructure and vegan friendliness. 

Atlanta was No. 4 for electric vehicles and No. 9 for vegan options, but its scores in the other categories brought down its overall ranking. It was No. 33 for greenspace, No. 35 for emissions and No. 46 for public transportation.

The top 10 cities in the overall rankings are, in order: Washington, D.C.; New York City; Portland, Oregon; Seattle; Boston; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Chicago and Denver. 

Washington, D.C., was No. 1 for both emissions and public transportation. Albuquerque, N.M., was tops for greenspace. Miami led the way in vegan options. San Francisco was best for electric vehicle infrastructure.
