Solving global problems on a local scale
Resources are becoming increasingly scarce...
Consumption of resources is unfortunately going UP
47.7 mt CO2e per year
The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) projects a 2% increase in power consumption in 2021 to 3,879 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh)
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) projects each American uses an average of 82 gallons of water a day at home
Gasoline prices are expected to reach $4 a gallon by Spring 2022 according to GasBuddy
Supply chain shortages are contributing to inflation but consumption is going back to pre-pandemic periods
Households need to learn how to consume less
Municipal governments can become a trusted resource to help Americans live sustainably
Trust in Various Types of Government as of Sep 2021 Gallup Poll:
Federal - 39%
State - 57%
Local - 66%
People will follow local governments' lead. It's up to municipalities to fill the leadership gap and provide solutions that benefit households and create better communities. Greenheart Partners knows how to do this.
