To make our cities part of the climate change solution, we need a comprehensive plan that addresses both pollution and income inequality.
NRDC is testing innovative strategies aimed at strengthening communities by boosting energy efficiency, reducing stormwater pollution and flooding, encouraging smart growth, cutting food waste, and providing better access to public transportation. We work on both citywide solutions and on smaller-scale neighborhood projects that can be scaled up.
What We're Doing
Through our All-In Cities project, we are working to promote and expand promising local sustainability initiatives in four major U.S. cities.
