Sustainability Vision: The City of Bloomington, Indiana will become a sustainability leader by working as a community to preserve our natural resources, maintain our distinct culture, build a diverse and thriving economy, and ensure a healthy and equitable standard of living (as developed by the Bloomington Community in 2018). 

The City of Bloomington has a long-standing commitment to sustainability and City partnerships. Programs related to energy conservation, renewable energy, and waste reduction have helped establish Bloomington as a regional sustainability leader and strengthened the volunteer and entrepreneurial spirit of the community.

The City addresses sustainability through careful attention to environmental, economic, and social equity issues, and looks for linkages among those issues. Sustainability and livability are our guiding principles and are the foundations of quality, long-lasting economic and community development.

Follow the work of the Commission on Sustainability or Environmental Commission for more information on community programs and efforts.
