Gwinnett is a Certified Gold Green Community
  Gwinnett County is the first county to achieve the Gold level in the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Green Communities program.

Since 2009, 18 jurisdictions in the 10-county region have been certified as Green Communities. Cities and counties earn certification by implementing practices and policies in 10 categories ranging from energy efficiency and green building to transportation and water efficiency.

The ARC program was the first in the U.S. to transform a region by promoting sustainability through green certification. For more, please visit their website at

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.
