working together to mitigate climate change
Sustainable Severn Sound is a collaborative program made up of seven municipalities, and three community organizations that collaboratively plans for and delivers watershed-scale services. Its main goal is to mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through the integration of climate supportive policy within municipal planning.
In collaboration with our partner municipalities, Sustainable Severn Sound has three broad roles:
municipalities and their communities on sustainable practices and policies and connect them to resources, tools and funding.
the adoption of practices and policies within municipal operations to support climate change mitigation, greenhouse gas reduction and sustainable communities.
for environmental, social, and economic best practices at the direction of our partner municipalities.
