NACCHO Demonstration Site: Climate Change Surveys of Lodging, Retail Food, and Restaurant Facilities

Description:

The Environmental Health Program (EHP) of the Hennepin County Human Services and Public Health Department (HSPHD) works with licensed food and lodging establishments in plan review and process control, so it is natural that EHP should be instrumental in helping these establishments identify sources of and means to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, thereby further protecting the public’s health.  To do so, EHP planned to establish baseline information on energy use by these establishments through direct survey.
