The Sustainable Directory Project
The Sustainability Directory mobile applications (app) utilizes the location services on Apple iPhone and Android to report a user’s proximity to selected sustainable resources A pilot directory and app, Cleaner and Greener Fuels, is currently under development, the directory will assist in locating alternative fuel stations nationwide. Ensuring available alternative fuel while on the road is currently a concern and barrier to the purchase of alternative fueled vehicles. This is a valuable tool for drivers making the transition to vehicles that are less reliant on fossil fuels. You can find more information at www.worldgreen.org/sustainable-directory.html .
The pilot project will be used as foundation to build a series of mobile applications that take advantage of the location services and integrate with legacy systems though a web service. The expansion of the Sustainability Directory will include services and destinations, such as sustainable buildings (i.e. ENERGYSTAR and LEED), and Green City Guides(a compilation of independent city green guides)
Our specific objectives for developing the Sustainability Directory include:
- Improving access to sustainability information, tools, and mobile applications as a free service to the public and through Social Media.
- Featuring city by city information to keep the community informed about their city’s green efforts as well as resource for green travel destinations.
- Giving recognition to organizations that employ green practices, such as green leasing, creating a marketing incentive for a formal commitment to sustainable practices.
- Organically expanding the list of sustainable locations and services by allowing users to suggest entries for the guide.
