2014 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Sustainability Report Card

From Charlotte Talks, WFAE 90.7 (Charlotte’s NPR Affiliate)

“We’ve talked a lot about sustainability – the state and quality of Charlotte’s air, water, energy use and more – and whether or not Charlotte is headed for a sustainable future. But now, the non-profit Sustain Charlotte has used the power of data to compile and compare nine different categories into one study, the first of its kind. The group rates our local sustainability trends, and compares them to national trends in air quality, energy use, equality and empowerment, food, jobs and income, land use, transportation, waste and water use. So, how are we doing? The report shows we’re making progress on energy use, and the area’s water use per household is lower than the national average. But we’re lagging behind when it comes to transportation and land use. And food insecurity and childhood poverty are on the rise.”
