If social sustainability is the least well-understood aspect of sustainability, environmental sustainability is probably the most familiar to people. “Environmental sustainability is responsibly interacting with the planet to maintain natural resources and not jeopardize the ability for future generations to meet their needs.” – thebalancesmb.com. Here in Nevada, environmental sustainability focuses primarily on equitable and enduring access to (clean) air and water, reducing energy use while promoting renewable energy, and responsibly expanding green spaces while balancing water use in our increasingly dry desert region.
Once the organization’s sole focus, environmental sustainability continues to be at the forefront of our programming. ImpactNV is proud to have contributed to environmental progress in Nevada for more than a decade.
Our current and past environmental projects include:
- Statewide 10-Year 100,000 Tree Plan
- Buen Aire Para Todos Air Quality Project (launching soon)
- Las Vegas Sign Project
- In-home Energy Assessments
- ImpactNV State of Sustainability Report
