The Carbon Efficient City shows how regional economies can be aligned with practices that drive carbon efficiency. It details ten strategies for reducing carbon emissions in our cities: standardized measurement, frameworks that support innovation, regulatory alignment, reducing consumption, reuse and restoration, focus on neighborhoods, providing spaces for nature, use of on-site life cycles for water and energy, coordination of regional transportation, and emphasis on solutions that delight people.

Although climate change is recognized as an urgent concern, local and national governments, nonprofits, and private interests often work at cross purposes in attempting to address it. The Carbon Efficient City's focus on concrete, achievable measures that can be implemented in a market economy gives it broad appeal to professionals and engaged citizens across the political spectrum.

MEDIA REVIEWS

. . . a systematic approach that can make a difference. . . in areas like building construction, land use, transportation, electricity generation and how consumers can choose value while at the same time playing a role in a carbon efficient economy.

-- Robert E. Hoopes * Wildlife Book Reviews *

Modestly named, it's nothing less than a 'best practices' manual for achieving carbon neutrality . . . framing the challenge culturally and legally, and using available technologies and political strategies to meet it. . . . Words to live by as we look forward.

-- Clair Enlow * Daily Journal of Commerce *
