Welcome to Sustainability
Innovation, Collaboration, Leadership
Simply put, sustainability refers to our ability to sustain ourselves, our community and the natural resources on which we depend (like clean air and water) for our day-to-day survival. Sustainability recognizes the need for us to move away from using resources in an inefficient and wasteful way and instead move toward a smarter way of doing business. It also recognizes the important links between economic prosperity, social well-being and environmental health.
Miami-Dade Sustainability collaborates with County agencies, business groups, non-profit organizations and other partners to protect and enhance the County's distinct environmental quality and livability. Additionally, the Office leads the development and implementation of the County's sustainability plan, GreenPrint. The plan will set the framework for the County to inspire, inform and enable our communities to improve their quality of life and increase economic prosperity through environmental responsibility.
The Office coordinates and assists with organization-wide and department-level change towards sustainable government culture, operations and service delivery in order for the County to provide lean green government, encourage strong environmental practices, create healthy urban environments, and provide smart mobility.
