‘Greenest Cities’ website features Katers’ insight


UW-Green Bay’s John Katers is one of 10 experts quoted by the web publisher WalletHub in its rankings of 2015’s Greenest Cities in America. Katers, chair of NAS and director of the Environmental Management and Business Institute, also provided answers on the site’s “Ask the Expert” page in which he address four questions:

• How do cities benefit by ‘going green’?

• What policies/initiatives offer most bang for the buck?

• How best to attract green businesses?

• Realistic, cost-effective ways for individuals to go green?
Among other things, Katers suggests that recycling is often only the third best option, “after reduce and reuse.”
