Action: Encourage cities along the river to adopt sustainability strategies.
Adopting sustainability strategies that encourage the use of best practices in the construction, maintenance, and operation of public projects can decrease a city’s environmental footprint, reduce long-term costs, and improve the relationships between buildings and their surrounding environments.
In addition to realizing these benefits, sustainability certification (such as LEED or ENVISION), and even the pursuit of certification, can help to raise public awareness of environmental and sustainability issues.
