EPA's Climate Showcase Communities: Investing in Locals Benefits Everyone

09-01-2016

EPA”s Climate Showcase Communities Program helps local governments and tribal nations pilot innovative, cost-effective and replicable community-based greenhouse gas reduction projects. There are 50 Climate Showcase Communities across the United States. Each community is piloting an innovative climate mitigation strategy. These pilot projects are helping communities reduce energy use and save money through creative energy production, residential and commercial energy efficiency, waste management, transportation and land use projects. Any community can take action to reduce greenhouse gas pollution — and improve people”s health and quality of life by reducing air pollution, making communities more walkable, and reducing energy bills at the same time. Your community can learn from these pilot projects and replicate their successes. Interested in learning more? Visit http://epa.gov/climateshowcase
