According to the 2014 Global Green Economy Index, Vancouver was recognized as the fourth greenest city in the world. Are you wondering what would have they done to achieve this? Here are few practices followed by the people of Vancouver with the goal of becoming the greenest city in the world by 2020:
1. Emphasize on the importance of Green Jobs:
Green Job or a Green-collar Job includes any work that contributes to preserve the environmental quality. Agriculture is a good example of Green-collar Job.
2. Promote Green Transportation:
By encouraging the use of public transit and bicycle instead of driving a car, the city becomes free from pollution which in turn keeps the city green forever.
3. Green Buildings:
Reducing Carbon-di-oxide emissions in existing buildings is one among the initiatives adopted by the crowd of Vancouver to keep their city clean and green.
4. Consumption of local food:
By increasing the amount of locally grown food, the ecosystem can be balanced and improved further. When there is a demand for locally grown food then the importance of agriculture goes high eventually, which will promote green jobs and hence a green environment.
5. Use of Clean Water:
Water scarcity is the biggest threat to any living population. Fortunately this is not prevalent in many parts of the world. Though having water resources in abundance, Vancouver accentuates people on consumption of water. Improving the quality of water and reducing its consumption helps better in achieving a green environment.
