Under the Umbrella

Green Umbrella is the leading alliance working to maximize the environmental sustainability of Greater Cincinnati. We’re driving collaboration to fuel measurable improvements in key areas of sustainability. Our vision is to have the region recognized as one of the top 10 most sustainable metro areas in the nation by 2020.

Our goals for the region by 2020:

  • GREENSPACE: Increase the acreage of protected greenspace by 8,000 acres.

  • OUTDOOR RECREATION & NATURE AWARENESS: Increase participation in recreational and educational activities, events and venues that get people outdoors into nature by 25%.

  • LOCAL FOOD: Double the production and consumption of fruits and vegetables grown within our region.

  • ENERGY: Reduce the total energy consumption in the built environment by 15% and double the local production of renewable energy each year.

  • TRANSPORTATION: Reduce the use of gasoline and diesel as motor fuels by 20%.

  • WASTE REDUCTION: Reduce waste disposed in the residential/commercial sector by 33% as we transition to “zero waste.”

  • WATERSHED: Protect, enhance and celebrate all streams, rivers and other water resources by making a measurable improvement in 75% of them.

Our work to meet these goals is done through collaborative Action Teams that meet monthly to drive progress toward the measurable goals they have established for our region. V
