|Brand Ratings -> Governor -> John Hickenlooper|
Party Affiliation: Democrat
Governor Hikenlooper introduced GreenPrint Denver, a plan to improve Denver's urban environment by increasing efficiency and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, promoting "green" urban design, and implementing an aggressive waste reduction campaign. The effort has reduced energy use at Denver International Airport by 11 percent per passenger, increased recycling throughout the city by 69 percent, and reduced water use at City Hall by a million gallons per year
Have the Citizens Responded:
Colorado fare well at a citizen level as well. Colorado uses a healthy amount of renewable resources and is well above average in emissions and energy use per capita. We would like to see more solar and geothermal energy as Colorado is fairly well suited for either of these energy types, but all things considered, the Colorado public is following their green governor.
