On Monday June 14, the National Association of Local Government Environmental Professionals (NALGEP) released its new report, "Profiles of Business Leadership on Smart Growth: New Partnerships Demonstrate the Economic Benefits of Reducing Sprawl." NALGEP launched the Smart Growth Business Partnership Project to identify businesses that are actively promoting alternatives to sprawl and to better understand the factors that motivate these businesses to take action. The report includes nineteen profiles of business leaders, including Bank of America, The Commercial Club of Chicago, DaimlerChrysler and Providence Energy, who are taking action in their communities to promote smart growth. Business leaders are realizing that an area's quality of life is directly linked to being able to retain and recruit qualified workers. The report describes the business community's emerging recognition of the costs and impacts of sprawl; identifies barriers to business leadership on smart growth; suggests strategies for overcoming these barriers; and recommends initial actions that businesses can take at the local level to promote livable communities. A PDF copy of the report can be downloaded at: http://www.nalgep.org/sg.html For more information, contact NALGEP at (202) 638-6254.
