Miami is the No. 26 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.
Miami was No. 1 for vegan options and No. 2 for electric vehicles, but its scores in the other categories brought down its overall rating. The city was No. 37 for public transportation, No. 41 for carbon emissions and No. 44 for greenspace.
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. San Francisco was best for electric vehicle infrastructure.
