Environment and Sustainability

 

The conditions of our local environment’s soil, water, and air are fundamental to healthy communities and an attractive quality of life. Associated energy, land use, and waste management systems further indicate the trajectory and health of these communities in ways that support or undermine many economic and healthcare outcomes. These interlinking relationships, and the way they disproportionally impact different areas and populations, are important to consider when exploring the distinct environmental indicators one-by-one.
