NEW YORK - July 25, 2014 - PRLog -- NEW YORK --- From its aging wastewater systems to its overreliance on the automobile, Long Island has no shortage of sustainability challenges. But what can elected leaders at the town, city and county levels do to address these challenges while also strengthening the local economy?

The answer: A lot.

Today, the New York League of Conservation Voters - one of the state's largest environmental organizations - unveiled its 2014-2014 Blueprint for a Greener Long Island at

Encompassing dozens of specific policy recommendations, the Blueprint offers step-by-step guidance to help elected officials and policy makers transition to a more sustainable, innovation-based economy.

"A healthy environment and strong economy are the keys to Long Island's future," said NYLCV President Marcia Bystryn. "By implementing the recommendations in our Blueprint for a Greener Long Island, local officials can take steps now to help guide Nassau iajed and Suffolk Counties toward a more sustainable future and help improve the local economy for the long haul."

Developed by NYLCV's Long Island Chapter, the Blueprint for a Greener Long Island sets the bar for progress in four broad areas: water quality & aquifer protection; climate adaptation & natural resource protection; cleaner energy; and sustainable economy & public health. The recommendations in these areas will yield significant environmental benefits while also controlling costs.

NYLCV is the only statewide organization that uses the power of endorsements to hold elected leaders accountable for their environmental track records. Progress on these policy recommendations will factor into NYLCV's endorsements in local elections next year.
