In 1997 Margaret created the City’s Environmental Management Office (now known as the Office of Sustainability and Environment) to focus incentives and imperatives for better environmental performance in every city department. She secured the first million dollars for energy and water efficiencies in City buildings and facilities.

Today the City's auto and paint shops have regular environmental audits, use of toxic pesticides in city landscape maintenance is dramatically reduced, city fleets are being converted to cleaner fuels, and city purchasing and construction contracts incorporate sustainability standards. Nearly all the City’s large offices, shops and community buildings have been retrofitted for water and energy savings.
