Fighting climate change is everyone's responsibility and the City of Roeland Park has taken measures to reduce its carbon footprint to ensure a sustainable future. In 2020, the City Council approved the purchase and implementation of Dynamhex, which helps cities measure their greenhouse gas emissions for the entire community, set nuanced reduction targets and track progress by engaging the local citizens for climate action on a web application.
It's a unique tool developed in Kansas City to give communities the tools to help combat climate change. Dynamhex, as a cloud-based platform, is now available for use by any resident or business in Roeland Park. Community members can use the tool which will show the city's carbon emissions, their personal emissions by their home or business and Dynamhex will provide suggestions to reduce emissions in each of those areas.
