The ability to meet our needs today without compromising the future – to be sustainable – has become paramount. Green building, renewable energy, ecological conservation and education are efforts that help us all reduce our impact on the environment while creating new markets.

Florida’s future depends upon us working together and responsibly to preserve and conserve our natural resources, maintain continued economic success and ensure that all in our state have the opportunity for a safe, healthy and vibrant quality of life.

Since 1990, the Council for Sustainable Florida, a program of the Collins Center for Public Policy, has served as the premier statewide champion for sustainability through collaboration and communication.

Our vision is that everyone adopt and implement values and practices that protect and improve Florida’s natural resources and provide economic opportunities for all. The result? Ensuring that Florida is a place where our children and grandchildren will want to and be able to live, work and play.

This section highlights award-winning examples of organizations that are doing well by doing good. It provides you the opportunity to examine your efforts and adopt a plan for sustainability. Contact us to help you create a Sustainable Florida!
