n 40,000 street lights were converted from 250 to 100-150 watt illumination, which
resulted in the following emissions reductions: from 38,124 to 17,268 metric tons of
CO2; from 2772 to 1260 metric tons of SO2; and from 1356 to 612 metric tons of NO2.
n Reforestation campaigns planted more than 120,955 trees using advanced
horticultural technologies and were carried out in conjunction with the public at large,
schools, businesses, boy scouts, members of civil society, NGOs and the Mexican Army.
Technological advances allowed for less tree attrition and enhanced planting-day efficiencies.
n Enhanced landfill supervision—overseeing the proper placement of several daily
tons of solid waste and designed to facilitate the ultimate capture of biogas for energy
generation—was carried out.
n The following local ravines were cleared of debris: Camino a las Minas (6496 cubic
meters of material removed); Honda Par-Vial (22,344 cubic meters of material removed);
Peine San José de los Leones (5054 cubic meters of material removed); Arroyo San Mateo
(49,672 cubic meters of material removed); and Andador Azucena (4074 cubic meters
of material removed).
n Citizen education efforts were carried out in support of urban tree stock, taking on such issues as proper pruning and care to avoid danger; easy-to-grow species
identification by soil and urban environment type; and the benefits, particularly atmospheric, offered by abundant tree populations.
n Awareness campaigns were directed at all sectors of the Naucalpan population via
informative workshops and events emphasizing sustainability and recycling, largely in the
city’s primary and intermediate schools. The importance of separating garbage and the
legal strictures governing the practice were also presented.
n Battery and tire recycling programs were enacted, leading to the proper isolation of
over 14,700 kg of toxic waste.
