Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Resource Conservation and Recovery

COURSE NO: R03-010
Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Resource Conservation and Recovery
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how local governments can help achieve environmental goals by encouraging source reduction and the reuse of products and materials, as well as composting and recycling wastes generated by their communities. This course describes the process of developing and implementing resource conservation and recovery measures, using real-world examples.


The aforementioned strategies are collectively known as resource conservation and recovery and have as their aim a reduction in waste management costs, air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy consumption.


This 3 PDH online course is intended for civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, and municipal engineers concerned with reducing the environmental impact of their local government through the introduction of sustainable technologies.
