United Way of Long Island has launched several green initiatives to increase energy-efficiency in existing homes and develop a green-collar workforce that will fulfill the demand of the expanding green economy on Long Island.
Connecting to emerging industries with high growth, high demand, career opportunities is a priority for United Way of Long Island under the income platform. There are several important local issues that could be solved by creating new jobs on Long Island while lowering energy consumption for the region. Currently the easiest path to national energy independence is to reduce the energy demand on residential housing in this area. This solution creates a stronger economy and a more sustainable environment for Long Islanders.
