How is Berks County doing?
With the philosophy of “what gets measured, gets done” in mind, the Berks Conservancy, along with a team of environmental experts, published the first comprehensive State of the Environment in Berks report in 2009. This report and associated programs evaluated specific data and trends in five environmental categories: Air, Energy, Land, Waste & Water. Measureable, actionable data was pursued and monitored that has encouraged individuals, corporations, and organizations to make changes that have positive effects on our local environment.
