What Is Ardsley CAN by 2030?

As you may have surmised, the CAN in Ardsley CAN is an acronym. The three letters serve as the pillars of the program. For all the pillars we have the following goals:

    • Reduce collective carbon emissions in Ardsley by 50% (to 50,000 metric tons/year) by 2030

    • Inform about pragmatic, doable actions for everyone

    • Measure our progress

    • Increase awareness about the need for climate adaptation

    • Empower us to slow or even reverse climate change

    • Excite Ardsley about change and our progress.


The Pillars of CAN:

The letter C stands for Carbon Reduction.


Our focus on carbon reduction starts with households in Ardsley. Specifically we’re looking at three key areas for change: our Everyday Lives, our Households and our Transportation.


The letter A stands for Acting Sustainably.


Sustainability means operating in a manner where we meet our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. This extends not only to natural resources but to society as a whole. We will be promoting sustainable practices that will involve lifestyle choices and helping the environment in our own backyards.


The letter N stands for Neighbor by Neighbor


This pillar leverages Ardsley’s generous community spirit by supporting these efforts neighbor by neighbor. This will involve volunteer activities within Ardsley. These activities provide opportunities to make a difference on a larger scale. Neighbor by neighbor also represents that each of us is an integral part of this change and that change will happen neighbor by neighbor.


And how do we plan to get there? Through community, communication, education, collaboration and action.
