Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
As energy and transportation costs rise, market demand for “green” grows
and budget cuts continue to loom, communities are increasingly
realizing the multiple benefits linking sustainability, cost savings and
economic development. From energy efficient strategies for buildings
to increasing opportunities for recreation and tourism, countries are
taking action and seeing returns on their sustainability investments.
This involves use of natural resources in creating energy, which is environmental friendly, socially acceptable and economically viable.
For example; For example, The City of Cleveland, Ohio has offered
discounts on city contracts to minority and women-owned businesses as a
means for economic inclusion. Recently the city has gone one step
further and has begun providing
businesses that participate in a local sustainable certification
program with a 4 percent discount on city contract bids.
