The District of Columbia’s sustainability plan goes far beyond the environment to reach people where it truly matters: their wallets, their community, and their health. Through the Sustainable DC initiative, District residents will save money, strengthen their community, and improve their health.
Some of the greatest impacts of the plan will take place in the larger economy as new businesses grow, new jobs are created, and whole new sectors of the economy develop. The effects of the plan will provide enormous opportunity for the city’s small businesses and improve the quality of life for residents in all of the city’s diverse neighborhoods.
Sustainability means bigger savings:
Sustainability means a stronger community:
Sustainability means healthier families:
To make this vision a reality, the city needs to take action now to ensure that our citizens—particularly the most vulnerable—benefit from increasing innovation and amenities, a broader tax base, a growing and diversified economy, and a wide range of new and accessible jobs. Sustainable DC will lay out a future for the city that is sustainable—not just environmentally, but economically and socially as well. Investments to revitalize neighborhoods, expand transportation choices, improve community health, restore rivers and parks, and train for jobs must be targeted for residents in all areas of the city. The savings, health benefits and economic opportunities that will come from this plan must be fairly shared so we will all progress into a sustainable future together.
