Sustainable Jersey

SUSTAINABLE JERSEY ™ is a certification program for municipalities in New Jersey that want to go green, save money, and take steps to sustain their quality of life over the long term.

Sustainable Jersey:
· Identifies concrete actions that municipalities can implement to become “certified” and be considered leaders on the path to sustainable communities
· Provides clear “how to” guidance and tools to enable communities to make progress on each action
· Provides access to grants, and identifies existing and new funding opportunities for municipalities to make progress toward the actions
· Encompasses the 3 equal, interrelated components of sustainability:
Prosperity-support your local economy and use community resources
Planet-practice responsible environmental management and conservation
People-embrace social equity and fairness

New Jersey is the first state in the nation to have a comprehensive sustainability program for communities that links certification with strong state and private financial incentives, and a fully resourced program of technical support and training. Sustainable Jersey has streamlined, incentivized and guided the process.
