All MORPC members and prior Central Ohio Green Pact members are eligible to participate in Sustainable2050. It’s easy; adopt a resolution of participation, and then we can begin working together on your sustainability initiatives.
We work with Sustainable2050 communities to benchmark their sustainability efforts and track their progress in achieving their sustainability goals and objectives. Our work with these communities gives us an understanding of how all efforts make a collective impact on the quality of life in Central Ohio.
Sustainable2050 is directly tied to the goals and objectives of the Regional Sustainability Agenda.
