Investing in Infrastructure Drives Economy While Going Green
The executive director of Environmental Entrepreneurs Bob Keefe argues for the potential of investing in infrastructure to drive the economy while being environmental friendly.
There are large proposals and ideas about improving infrastructure making the legislative rounds of D.C. Three areas that could bring vast improvements in infrastructure are public transit, water, and energy, each with the potential to create millions of jobs in the process. Energy, in particular, has the capacity to reduce our environmental footprint by investing in clean energy.
Priming the pump with the right federal policies and investments can pay off in a major way when it comes to America’s infrastructure.
While key infrastructure legislation has yet to be passed, the area remains a prime opportunity for supporting the American economy while improving efficiency and going green.
