Checking in on Clark County’s sustainability efforts, All-In.
Clark County is taking its commitment to sustainability to the next level. The County, at the behest of Commissioner Justin Jones, will adopt a Sustainability/Climate Action Plan in one year’s time. Additionally, it will hire a full-time manager dedicated to sustainability to be housed in the Department of Air Quality. An audit will be conducted of the County’s sustainability efforts to date to determine their effectiveness and how they can be improved. And, finally, the County will join the national County Climate Coalition. Jones described the plan as a continuation of the 2008 Clark County Eco-County Initiative, which established the creation of the Office of Sustainability, which is run by staff who have other responsibilities.
