District of Columbia Office of Planning and District Department of the Environment
PES participated in a multi-disciplinary effort to develop a comprehensive plan for sustainability in Washington, DC. The plan cuts across seven major areas, bringing together actions related to the built environment, energy, transportation, nature, water, waste and food. PES focused on the green economy, opportunities for new businesses and jobs, and strategies to support those new businesses. Particular emphasis was being given to workforce development strategies to assure that jobs are created for unemployed and underemployed residents of the District so that all segments of the population and all sections of the city will benefit from the strategies.
