IN SUPPORT OF A NEW RESOURCE CONSERVATION STRATEGY FOR THE NEXT DECADE

WHEREAS, recycling was the environmental success story of this generation, and recycling has become a part of the environmental ethic in American households and businesses across the country; and

WHEREAS, we must build upon the success of the nation’s recycling efforts, and explore new ways to build upon these successes to address the next generation of environmental and societal challenges; and

WHEREAS, there is a need for a more concerted effort to examine further how to extend the recycling ethic to new approaches to conserving energy, natural resources, materials and other resource conservation goals; and

WHEREAS, as we look to the future, we must adopt new measures and pursue policies to increase resource conservation actions which fully tap the substantial support among American businesses and households for such efforts; and

WHEREAS, mayors are uniquely situated to provide leadership, ideas and agenda-setting actions that advance resource conservation as the environmental ethic of the next couple of decades;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that The U.S. Conference of Mayors supports a broad agenda to ensure that resource conservation becomes a priority for the nation and calls upon mayors to advance this agenda in their cities and within the Conference; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Conference calls upon the Administration, including its Departments and agencies, as well as the Congress to support this objective and help ensure that resource conservation is a part of the national agenda.
