Rapport Enters Municipal Market : Portland Maine To Track Environmental Impact With Rapport
We’re very excited to announce our entry into the municipal market with Portland, Maine. Portland is dedicated to understanding its environmental impact and is taking a progressive position in sustainability and resiliency. We’re thrilled to be working with the city leadership on this initiative.
From the MaineBiz (MB) article:
MB: How unique is it that Portland has signed on with Rapport to begin benchmarking its environmental footprint?
Justin Jaffe: It places Portland toward the front of the pack in demonstrating engagement with sustainability and taking it seriously. There are a handful of other cities and towns that have engaged in similar practices. It’s the ones you would expect: New York City, San Francisco, Cambridge, Boston. So I think that Portland is punching above its weight class.
JR: Our philosophy has always been built on the concept of democratizing sustainability, bringing sustainability to the people who ordinarily couldn’t afford it. We’re targeting small- to mid-size business, municipalities and schools. With that as a market, there’s plenty of growth ahead for us. There’s only one New York City, one Atlanta, one San Francisco. But they all have bedroom communities that need to be paying attention to sustainability issues like Portland is.
