Interactive map of which cities are greener (Sustainability Tracker), 2015
Marin County, CA
HOW YOU CAN BENEFIT
Before 2015, you could not easily see and compare how green each city is in Marin County. So in 2015, Marin created a map so anyone could see progress made since 2005, and tips to green your home, business or city.
WHY IT'S A LEADING PROGRAM
Similar tracker websites are not as user-friendly or do not show as much data.
To create friendly competition between cities, make it easier for anyone to see progress over time and meet sustainability goals.
WHO CAN TAKE ACTION
While Marin County made excellent progress to reduce waste, the tracker helped them see they need to address the fact that household energy use hardly dropped since 2005.
