Taking Action in Government Operations

Exercising Leadership, Strengthening Performance

Taking action to reduce emissions in local government operations is an opportunity to improve energy efficiency and optimize systems, strengthening overall performance and service delivery. A government’s own operations are only a percentage of a community’s total emissions. Local government leadership, however, plays a pivotal role in building knowledge inside town hall and out in the community that leads to much deeper emission reductions.
