Summary
Choosing a Sustainable Future provides concrete and detailed policy recommendations that can set the United States on the path toward sustainability. Prepared by the National Commission on the Environment, a private-sector initiative convened by World Wildlife Fund, the report outlines a viable strategy for long-term economic and environmental well-being. Focusing on sectors of the economy that can be directly influenced by public policy, the Commission proposes specific initiatives that can increase energy efficiency, promote the development of new energy technologies, encourage pollution prevention, foster more sensible and appropriate land use, and reorient international policy initiatives toward sustainability
