Earth Day: Championing Sustainability

Happy Thursday Friends, Clients & Colleagues,

As always, we hope our brief reflection finds you and yours well.

This Earth Day, April 22nd, presents a unique opportunity for us all to reflect on our environmental commitments and celebrate the remarkable sustainability initiatives across our beloved Miami-Dade County.  

Marile, our kids and I are fully committed to climate resilience and conservation efforts.  

Today, we are proud to spotlight the outstanding work of our clients and leaders, including Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, Chairman Oliver Gilbert, and County Commissioners, who are at the forefront of environmental stewardship and sustainable development.

🌞 Solar Innovations: In an exciting development, Mayor Daniella Levine Cava recently unveiled a new solar panel installation at the Metro West Detention Center. This facility now features a rooftop array of 1,709 solar panels, which will cut carbon emissions by approximately 880 tons annually. This project not only underscores our county’s leadership in renewable energy but also projects significant savings for our community and taxpayers. This solar installation is the second of three large-scale solar pilot projects being deployed in Miami-Dade County.

🛩️ Pioneering Sustainable Infrastructure at Miami International Airport: Mayor Levine Cava, Committee Chairman Keon Hardeman and Aviation Director Ralph Cutie recently highlighted a historic $7 billion investment in capital improvements and $1.7 billion in maintenance upgrades at Miami International Airport. These enhancements include significant upgrades to electrical systems and solar-powered terminal roofs, setting new standards for sustainability in our infrastructure.

🌤️ Launching Climate Week Miami: April 22nd also marks the beginning of the inaugural Climate Week Miami, a gathering of diverse stakeholders aimed at tackling pressing climate issues. This event will promote discussions on environmental justice, clean energy, and zero-emission mobility, among other topics, to enhance our climate resilience and conservation efforts.

🌍 Earth Day Festivities at Larry & Penny Thompson Memorial Park: Join us for the Earth Day celebration at Larry & Penny Thompson Memorial Park on April 20th — a day of environmental education and activities designed to enhance our local ecosystems and combat plastic pollution. This event is a fantastic opportunity for community engagement and environmental action. Commissioner Kionne McGhee is also set to join the festivities. Click here for more information. 

🌞 Let’s Celebrate Together! Miami-Dade County is at the forefront of integrating sustainable solutions. Let’s join together to celebrate the strides we’ve made and further our commitment to a sustainable future.
