Radnor Township prides itself on its commitment to promoting and implementing steps to protect the environment.
In September 2007 the Radnor Township Board of Commissioners adopted Resolution 2007-24 and declared its intent to endorse the U.S. Mayors' Climate Protection Agreement, which calls upon cities across the United States to join in establishing goals and strategies to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases.
Greenhouse Gas Reduction
In addition, the board declared its intent to develop an action plan to limit the increase in township energy costs and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the community. The Commissioners recognized the need to anticipate rising energy costs and to continue Radnor's leadership role in environmental protection, building on the benefits already accrued through Radnor township's purchase of energy from renewable sources and investments in energy efficiency.
Radnor Township believes that it is vital to our community, and the world, to take the necessary steps to ensure a green future for Radnor.
