ABOUT US

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.
