The Sustainability Institute at the College of New Jersey is a “think and do” tank that manages a number of cutting edge research and outreach programs focused on sustainable development, including the award winning Sustainable Jersey Certification Program and numerous federal and state grant-funded projects. Our mission is to advance sustainable development through research, outreach, and training. We work with local, state, and federal government, as well as the private sector, to help decision makers develop better capacity to understand the long term consequences of their actions, and develop and deploy best practices in a number of policy areas including land use, energy, green infrastructure, among others.
The Sustainability Institute has numerous publications on a variety of topics. The latest release is the report, “Statewide Change, One Community at a Time: A Comparative Study of Collaborative State-Local Sustainability Programs.” Read this an all the other publications HERE.
