Leadership Somerset Sustainability

As a leader, I know that an important part of leadership is continuing to learn about and take ownership of the issues that are important to society. On Wednesday, I continued my participation in the Somerset County Leadership Summit. Among the workshops was a presentation by Michael Catania, Executive Director of Duke Farms, about local efforts to combat climate change, highlighting long-term collaborative research by Duke Farms and Rutgers University. New Jersey is disproportionately affected by climate change — in the future, we can expect more rain, flooding, and droughts. Recent studies suggest that using natural climate solutions can provide a third of what we need to do in order to save our planet. We need to reduce emissions and work with nature to pull carbon out of the atmosphere. Duke Farms is taking the lead in using innovative ideas and using research from Rutgers to implement new farming methods and sustainability practices in order to further this fight. Sustainability — and taking steps toward true environmental stewardship — is a highlight of my campaign platform. In order to ensure biodiversity, conserve our forests, oceans, and wildlife, and halt the forces that are damaging nature, we need to take immediate action. We need to take personal responsibility. As a leader, I hope to join you in this fight. #sustainability #leadership #chadda2019
