What we do

Measure Louisville’s Sustainability

Through a partnership with the LSC and the Metro Louisville’s Office of Sustainability, Louisville has been selected as a 2014 STAR Leadership Community to be mentored through the non-profit,  Sustainability Tools for Assessing &  Rating (STAR) Communities.  This effort will provide Louisville with sustainability metrics and ratings for bench-marked comparison to other communities across the nation.  Louisville’s rating will be available in 2015.

Facilitate Community Action Teams

Individual members and representatives of organizations are invited to participate in LSC Action Teams.  Our teams bring together people who share an interest in a particular environmental topic to implement strategies to promote sustainability and develop our action community.  Teams are free to join and open to all.

Host Events

The Louisville Sustainability Council co-hosted Louisville’s first Sustainability Summit with the Louisville Metro Office of Sustainability and the Louisville Zoo on January 17 and 18, 2014.  The purpose of this Sustainability Summit was to foster community engagement and provide citizens with an opportunity to contribute to the achievement of certain goals identified in Metro Louisville’s sustainability plan.

The LSC hosts regular “Meet-Ups” to bring together all five action teams to connect directly and continue to progress forward together.
