Environment & Energy
GLI’s Environment and Energy Committee focuses on environmental, regulatory, and energy-related issues impacting numerous different industries in the Greater Louisville region, ranging from manufacturing and Bourbon to utilities and logistics. GLI supports reasonable regulations that protect the environment and facilitate economic growth and energy policies that grow renewable, domestically-produced and alternative energy resources in Kentucky, while maintaining Kentucky’s low energy costs, to protect the vital role energy plays in economic development and business success.
Some of GLI’s key environment and energy wins in 2017 and 2018 include passage of legislation enhancing regional water and wastewater systems and defeating legislation aimed at imposing unreasonable energy mandates on businesses and utilities. The Environment and Energy Committee also actively engages with Louisville Metro Government on environment and energy issues.
The Environment and Energy Committee meets monthly and also receives specialized email and calls-to-action on issues related to the Committee’s interests. To learn more about joining the Committee, send us a quick email. All GLI investors are eligible to serve on one or more of GLI’s six Issue Advisory Committees.
