The objective of TNCC's EcoAction Program is to empower individuals and businesses to understand the global impact of their actions, connect to their deepest values, and live sustainably from the heart. This program will help people understand their current energy and resource usage, and then inspire them to take actions that reduce their environmental impact and save them money. The results are measurable reductions in carbon emissions and an improved quality of life.
The EcoAction initiative can be completed in three easy steps
Your decision to join TNCC's EcoAction Initiative is the first step towards lowering your energy consumption, reducing your environmental impact and leading a "greener" life. By your example, you are helping to inspire your neighbors and the community to work together, have fun and live sustainably from the heart.
EcoAction Checkup Defined
Through personalized data analysis, the EcoAction Checkup highlights areas in which change can have the biggest positive impact. Through the completion of a home visit that takes no more than an hour, the EcoAction Mentor helps identify specific steps an individual can take to reduce their energy consumption, carbon emissions, and waste from both environmental and financial perspectives.
