FISHERS, Ind., August 6, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Land Betterment Corporation (“Land Betterment” or the “Company”), an environmental solutions company fostering positive impact through upcycling former coal mining sites to create sustainable community development and job creation, is proud to announce its recognition by Indianapolis Monthly.  The local magazine discusses the challenges that several southern Indiana counties face as regional and national electricity generation transition away from coal-based fuels.  

The coal industry has powered the southern Indiana economy both figuratively and literally for generations.  Every year the industry has an approximate $750 million economic impact to the region.  The article suggests that the debate is not so much over the future of coal in Indiana, but rather how and when the fuel will be phased out.  Stakeholders are working to create a transition that is as smooth as possible for communities, workers and tax revenue.  

The decline of the thermal coal industry has a tremendous ripple effect throughout these communities.  Public services like schools and roads become at risk, and the communities need the adoption of new industries to help pay for such services.  
“Land Betterment sits right in the middle of this issue and we are proud of our innovative and sustainable solutions to repurpose the impacted land in these communities.  Our team brings industries that meet the needs of a cleaner, modern and more sustainable economy,” stated Kirk Taylor, President of Land Betterment.
