VPIS, with assistance from the city’s Environmental Sustainability Council (ESC), developed five important goals for the city to improve environmental sustainability:
- Increase tree canopy
- Increase residential solid waste recycling
- Reduce the release of greenhouse gases causing global warming
- Increase green or “pervious” surfaces
- Promote sustainable building standards
VPIS will be producing a report to measure are success in meeting these goals every few years.
