Sustain Auburn is here to support, guide, and track our town’s comprehensive environmental efforts. We encourage you to explore this dashboard. These are the metrics we track to guide decision-making toward a more resilient and self–sustainable community. More than words, we provide data so you can see where we are now to envision a cleaner future.
If you cannot measure it, you cannot manage it.
We strive to increase reliance on renewable energy and consume energy more efficiently. To get there, we need to understand what our usage is now. Local utilities, other agency partners, and individual efforts all play a key role in achieving energy goals. Learn more about how Sustain Auburn is cleaning up power here.
Water is essential to our daily lives. Whenever water is used, there is potential for conservation both inside and outside of your home or business. Fresh water is a limited resource, making water conservation an important factor for the environment. With population growth, expansion of industry, increasing levels of development activity, and the potential for climate change impacts there is increasing pressure placed on our water resources. Whether you are on a municipal or a private domestic water supply, water conservation is a wise practice.
As a community and as individuals, we dedicate significant resources to maintaining roads and vehicles. By measuring modes of travel, we can more intelligently solve transportation problems to reduce traffic congestion and benefit the consumer by reducing transportation costs. Inadequate transport options often limit personal and economic opportunities available to community members. Increasing transportation options can help level the playing field and create a more livable, resilient, and secure community environment.
