Do you know how green Broward cities are? Want to know? So did we! So, in the spring of 2011, Broward County’s Energy and Sustainability Program reached out to our 31 municipalities to gather information on the scope and diversity of energy efficiency initiatives and sustainability programs implemented throughout our community. Questions covered many topics, including: Greenhouse Gas Mitigation, Energy Conservation and Production, Transportation and the Built Environment, Water Use and Conservation, Waste Reduction and Recycling, and Climate Change Adaptation Planning.
We found that, collectively, local governments in Broward County have taken significant strides in implementing energy conservation measures and sustainability initiatives.
Look how green our community is! Sustainability in Broward County Florida: Local Government in Action summarizes the outcomes of the survey. The report illuminates general trends in program direction, priorities, and funding, but more importantly, highlight success stories, identify best management practices, and propose opportunities for future community-wide collaboration and program advancement. The results are more than informative - they are inspiring!
