This guide describes specific actions that a local government can take to transform itself into a model of sustainable practices. These practices can result in cost savings, increased employment, improved environmental quality, and enhanced community well-being. Topics covered include sustainable approaches to energy, building, transportation, purchasing, investment, and hiring (48 pages; 2007).
For information on building sustainability in additional functions of local government, see Toward a Sustainable Community, Volume 2 (G4031).
