Sustainability 

 

How will Illinois benefit from a "green" economy? The Sustainability Committee will take up the subjects of smart growth, green buildings, bio-fuels, clean energy technology, smart grid and electric vehicles. Global best practices will be identified, and the Committee will recommend ways to work with existing industry on sustainable practices as well as attract and grow green businesses.
