What is "Sustainability"?

"Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." 

Brundtland Commission Report, 1987

Sustainable Twin Ports aims to accelerate the adoption of sustainable practices by businesses, civic organizations and our community by providing sustainability training and consulting services.

Using the internationally recognized Natural Step framework, we guide organizations through the process of developing a customized sustainability action plan that can improve operational efficiency, elevate brand reputation and generate long-term competitive advantages - all while minimizing negative environmental and social impacts.

We also conduct education and public outreach through strategic partnerships and special events. Founded in 2008 as a nonprofit, STP is powered by volunteers and the desire to take positive action toward creating a sustainable future for everyone in the Western Lake Superior region.
