Office of Sustainability


Sustainability is the nexus of environmental, economic and social responsibility, and nowhere is that need more important than in the energy sector.  Energy affects everyone, and has far reaching impacts on our public and private economy, our environment and our social conscience

Mission

The mission of the Office of Sustainability is to create opportunities to promote and implement sustainability principles and programs that support New Jersey’s communities and businesses and will enable the State to achieve its legislatively mandated 60% total solid waste recycling goal and its 50% municipal solid waste recycling goal.

Programs & Initiatives

Staff from the Office of Sustainability work on and support; The New Jersey WasteWise Business Network, the Sustainability Speaker Series, Sustainable Jersey, and the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry.  Staff also develops a variety of sustainability related educational and outreach materials, manages awards and contests and supports New Jersey Higher Education Sustainability programs.
