In a town that houses Congress, a body that is synonymous with inefficiency and gridlock, it is nice to know that at least the city itself is moving forward. With the Sustainable D.C. Act of 2012 signed into law, a whole host of new plans have been set in motion. Along with the support of Mayor Vincent Gray, the legislation has outlined 32 goals, 31 targets, and more than 140 actions to help make Washington DC one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the country. DC already leads the nation on number of LEED buildings per capita; the city also purchases 100 percent renewable energy, and it hosts one of the largest bike share networks in the country. So what does the future have in store for our nation’s capital?
