We’re uniting the Roaring Fork Valley to take action on the environment by saving energy. Why? Because buildings are the largest source of carbon emissions, counting for up to 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. The energy-saving steps we take at work and at home — in buildings — are the most effective tool for meeting our climate goals.
