The Issues

Missouri faces a wide range of sustainability challenges that differ from region to region. In densely-populated urban areas, mass transit and green buildings are critical for reducing energy use and fighting climate change. In suburban parts of the state, smart growth development strategies are vital to controlling sprawl and creating livable and sustainable communities. In more rural areas, the fight for preservation of farmland and open space are top environmental priorities.

MVC works in Jefferson City to ensure that a priority is put on all of these issues through electing candidates and passing legislation that will advance environmental protection in our state. Visit the following pages for more information on each issue:
