Green Initiatives & Environmental History for: North Carolina





Basic History

North Carolina’s coast was possibly first explored by Spanish navigators in 1524. The first permanent settlements took place around 1653. In 1712, North Carolina was made a separate colony. The British government made North Carolina a royal colony in 1729. Thereafter the region developed more rapidly. In 1784, North Carolina ceded its western lands to the United States. Considerable antislavery sentiment existed until the 1830s. The Reconstruction constitution of 1868 abolished slavery. The turn of the twentieth century marked the beginning of a new progressive era, and new interest was created in developing the state’s agricultural and industrial resources. Industrialization burgeoned after World War II.

Green Initiatives

NC GreenPower is an independent, non-profit organization that is working to improve North Carolina’s environment through voluntary contributions toward renewable energy and mitigation of greenhouse gases. It is a green energy program supported by all the state’s utilities, and supplements the state’s existing power supply with more green energy- electricity generated from renewable energy sources like the sun, wind, and organic matter. It also offers carbon offsets to address growing concerns about the impact of greenhouse gases on the environment. With growing interest in energy and water savings, more and more government facilities are adopting sustainability policies and green building a requirement, leading to a greater awareness of the impact government has on North Carolina economy and natural resources. North Carolina government is an important contributor to the state’s environmental quality in three main areas: as a whole, the government is the single largest organization, consuming energy and natural resources and creating waste and other environmental impacts; it creates laws and policies that shape the economic growth of the state and its impacts on the environment; is a highly-visible role model for the state’s citizens, businesses, industries and local governments. The state’s Project Green includes: Cool Cities Resolution; assessments to save fuel and reducing air pollution; Climate Action; and NC League of Municipalities Green Challenge.
