Local governments across North Carolina adopt resolutions committing to measures of sustainability and reducing carbon emissions. These resolutions are designed to initiate a plan for communities to “develop a vision and implement long-term goals that address challenges” around sustainable practices, most often around the subject of energy use and production.

These goals become increasingly important as the changing climate makes traditional energy sources more scarce at the same time energy use is increasing. Communities across North Carolina adopted resolutions, but western North Carolina often  leads the way.

ncIMPACT hosts a town hall on the campus of UNC Asheville to share some homegrown solutions that are making a positive financial and environmental impact.
