Local governments can lead the way in sustainability through projects such as solar energy.

Local Governments—What You Can Do

As local governments, we can have a significant impact on our environment. We are major consumers of goods and services, and we use energy and water in our many facilities. Thousands of employees and citizens travel to our buildings. Together, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the quality of life in our communities. We can also work together to plan strategic action on climate change and influence policy makers at the federal and state levels.
