If you have ever wondered how you, your business or your community could reduce greenhouse gas emissions daily, there is a workshop designed for you. The Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) and KY EXCEL, Kentucky’s environmental leadership program, have partnered to organize a free “Creating a Green Footprint Workshop” to be held on April 26. Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government will be hosting the workshop from 12:30–4:30 p.m. EDT at the Tate Building located at 125 Lisle Industrial Avenue, Suite 180, in Lexington. Registration will begin at 12:30 p.m. followed by the workshop at 1 p.m.

During this half-day event, the Division of Compliance Assistance (DCA); Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center, an Inaugural Leader member of KY EXCEL; Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, a KY EXCEL Leader member; and the Division of Forestry will share their knowledge and expertise. Participants will leave knowing the basics of how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent pollution from everyday activities through heating and cooling or planting a tree. Participants will not become experts, but will gain a general overview in order to create a green footprint. Each attendee will leave the workshop with a free sapling to plant.

What will be covered?

  • How to reduce greenhouse gas emissions daily
  • Cost and GHG emission analysis of multiple heating and cooling options
  • Insight into creating a forestry program
