Some of the Minneapolis Sustainability indicators

The podcast this week is a conversation with Brendon Slotterback, longtime Streets.mn writer and sustainability program coordinator for the city of Minneapolis. Brendon has been leading the city’s efforts to develop and achieve a set of sustainability metrics, targets aimed at reducing energy use, pollution, and increasing social equity in Minnesota’s largest city. We met up a few days ago at the One on One bike studio in the North Loop to talk about the definition of sustainability, how best to reduce energy use, whether there is such a thing as “greenwashing”, and why benchmarks might make sense for cities attempting to decrease their environmental footprint.
