Chicago’s future lies in attracting green manufacturing

Abstract:
A recent United Nations study found that the need for water could double in the next 50 years, potentially fueling violent conflict. Efficient water management is critical and profitable. By requiring that all new buildings contain such filtration systems now, the administration could entice manufacturers to Chicago with a captive market. As the demand for such systems increases worldwide, Chicago would be home to a major supplier. A green manufacturing center need not be limited to the construction industry. Advances in nanotechnology promise to harness solar energy to operate electronic devices such as laptops, cell phones and even thermal clothing. Across the country, innovative manufacturers are producing smart products that use alternative energy or simply use energy more efficiently. With several major research universities, a large skilled labor pool, a rich cultural life and a legacy of environmental stewardship, Chicago offers great prospects for green manufacturers. Daley should aggressively and creatively court these companies to make Chicago their home as the first step toward becoming a world leader in green manufacturing and green living.
