Sustainable Florida advances the vision of sustainability by identifying, supporting and communicating best management practices — those which protect and preserve Florida’s environment while building markets for Florida’s businesses by enhancing their competitive advantages today.
Our quality of life is in jeopardy with reports of climate change, water rationing, degradation of natural habitat, an increasing economic divide, a lack of high quality jobs, lack of a diversified economy and lack of affordable workforce housing, continued vulnerability to natural disasters, overcrowded roads and highways, increasing energy costs and concerns about affordable healthcare.
Fortunately, every day many work toward creating workable solutions to address these concerns to ensure continued success today and for future generations. For more than 15 years, Sustainable Florida – Collins Center has served as the premier statewide champion for sustainability. We are committed to creating a more sustainable Florida through collaboration and communication.
Our vision is that every individual, organization, government and corporation adopt and implement operational values and practices that protect and improve Florida’s natural resources and provide economic opportunities for all. We want to ensure that future generations of Floridians inherit a beautiful state with rich natural resources, healthy ecosystems, vibrant communities, a lifestyle full of opportunities for personal growth and public involvement, and a diverse, productive, and growing economy
Sustainable Florida promotes sustainable best management practices through collaborative educational efforts throughout Florida. These efforts include convening and working with regional grassroots sustainability organizations and Florida’s colleges and universities.
