> Sustainability Strategy

 The Sustainability Team developed the Tompkins County Sustainability Strategy, with input from individuals throughout the organization, to provide a coordinated approach to integrating sustainable practices into Tompkins County government operations during the 2014-2019 time period. The Sustainability Strategy represents part of Tompkins County’s continuing efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the risks associated with climate change for the health, safety, and well-being of the local and broader global community.

The Sustainability Strategy provides overall sustainability objectives along with actions departments and individual employees can take to achieve these objectives, and “measures of success” that provide a means to review progress in meeting the objectives. County employees are strongly encouraged to become familiar with the Sustainability Strategy and to help implement the actions and share their ideas for meeting the objectives. Everyone is invited to consider how their actions can promote sustainable practices within their own organizations, communities, and homes.
