We are part of the Holland community focused on reducing the impacts of climate change!

OUR GOAL

CUT 50% IN GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS PER PERSON EVERY 10 YEARS

Science demands it, technology is there to do it, we owe it to the future generations

Similar sized cities like Dubuque IA and Eau Claire WI are doing it; Holland still has time to lead

Shorter term increases urgency, accountability, practicality, and the opportunity to lead by example 

Local ownership of HBPW enables a stronger and more nimble response
