ABoR maintains that quality of life is one of the main drivers of development and economic stability in Central Texas. Water is essential to preserving that quality of life. A safe, reliable water supply that will support residents and businesses alike is essential to protecting the quality of life and healthy business environment we enjoy in Central Texas.
ABoR commits to protecting Austin’s unique environment and to educating our members on the importance of sustainable business and living practices. The true “cost” of a home is defined through a holistic look at all of the expenses associated with the maintenance and day to day life of each property. From the rising price of water, electricity, gas and transportation, it is evident that every homeowner is feeling the pull of increased costs. The return on investment is huge when consumers are adequately educated and understand the bottom-line benefit of conservation measures they can implement in their own homes and lives. ABoR supports energy conservation efforts and programs that will transform the Austin market by embracing the value of conservation and sustainability.
The Water & Sustainability Policy Team monitors and engages in public policy development to ensure the Austin region has an adequate, affordable, and clean water and energy supply that will be sufficient for the continued growth, economic health, and overall sustainability of the community.
