Environment Take Action

The Buffalo Niagara region is facing major environmental problems with sprawl, air pollution, poor water quality, and numerous brownfields.

Local and state governments need to understand that the most competitive cities of the future will be the greenest: cities that promote mass transit, green buildings, and the conservation of energy, water, and habitats.
