Commissioners go green at the zoo

Hamiton County Commissioners will hold a press conference Tuesday to announce their participation in the national Cool Counties initiative and the adoption of the Environmental Stewardship Policy for Hamilton County.

They already signed resolutions about both policies but this conference gives them the opportunity to do it at the Cincinnati zoo and do it just prior to a Go Green Challenge networking luncheon. Very fitting.

The press conference is at 11:30 a.m. at the Harold C. Schott Education Center.

Under the Cool County initiative the county is committing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2 percent annually.

Under the Environmental Stewardship Policy commissioners committed to thinking green in all decisions relating to county operations.

I am glad to see this step, but it is important to also look at going green as a way to spur business growth. I encourage the Commissioners and City Council of Cincinnati to look into Milwaukee's "Greenfields" program- which targets emerging green industry (e.g. the solar industry) by providing an incentive similar to an Enterprise Zone. This not only enables Milwaukee to be on the forefront of reducing it's carbon emissions, but it also spurs new job growth. Helping the environment is good for business!

This credit of GO GREEN should be credited to Hamilton County Department of Environmental Services and not the Commissioners. Just wait, PORTUNE will take credit for this forward-step, too. Please ..............
