SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

  • Miami-Dade County’s 77-megawatt Resources Recovery Facility is a technologically-advanced waste-to-energy plant, recycling the majority of the County waste (more than million tons annually) into biomass fuel.

  • U.S. federal policy on climate regulation: U.S. companies are aligning their business strategies with net-zero emissions by 2050 or sooner. Corporate disclosure on climate risk and GHG emissions will become mandatory.

  • Paris Agreement On Climate Change: Nearly 200 nations, including the U.S., signed and committed to limit their greenhouse gas emissions in an attempt to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius – preferably below 1.5 degrees Celsius – compared to pre-industrial temperatures.
