Together, with Detroiters, we will create a Detroit where neighborhoods, homes, and businesses are more healthy,  green, vibrant, and interconnected.

What is Sustainability?

Sustainability is meeting the needs of our current generations without sacrificing the needs of future generations, through a focus on equity, environment, and economy.  Sustainability issues have a direct impact on residents’ daily lives. From better transportation options — including expansion of bus service and improvements to make walking and biking easier — to energy costs, water, air quality, access to healthy and affordable food, open space, and stormwater management. Sustainability touches all aspects of our daily routines and community life.
