Gwinnett Environmental Sustainability: Living, Working, Growing Green
Efficiency. Reduced impact on our water, air, and Earth. Better buildings and transportation systems. Less waste of energy and precious natural resources.

That's what "environmental sustainability" is all about - and this website is the central online clearinghouse for information about what Gwinnett County is doing - both the government and the community.

When this site is fully developed, you'll find sections on green buildings, land use and greenspace, energy efficiency, water conservation, recycling and waste reduction, and transportation and air quality.

Here you'll learn what you can do - and what your County government is already doing - to set a good example. Living green. Working green. Growing green. Gwinnett County is pulling together to build a more sustainable future for our children and grandchildren.
