I knew this designation would better position Harris County to attract new investments and economic development to our area. Companies and investors are increasingly looking for locations prioritizing sustainability and clean energy, and receiving this designation signals to these groups that Harris County is committed to creating a more sustainable future. This can lead to job creation, increased revenue, and a more robust local economy.
