Sustainable CT Actions


Sustainable CT actions are designed with flexibility to meet the varying needs of all municipalities. Each action description below includes benefit icons, action steps, certification points, and resources. Complete one action in categories 1-12 to be eligible for Bronze or Silver certification. Many actions have variable points, which means there are several ways to complete the action. Achieve any one of the designated point levels within an action to consider it complete.

Sustainable CT is piloting an optional Climate Leader Designation in 2022, celebrating municipalities that are reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions while saving money, improving public health, and building community. Any town currently certified, or that successfully applies for (re)certification in 2022, is eligible to apply for this designation. Sustainable CT has identified a suite of actions that will help your community control emissions. Achieve at least 140 points from the pre-identified suite of actions and your town will be designated a Climate Leader. You can filter for qualifying Climate Leader actions below.
