The Boulder County Commissioners have always placed a high priority on sustainability, making it a guiding principle for the county. This commitment to environmental sustainability is echoed by our community, as recent countywide surveys show that a majority of Boulder County residents truly value sustainability as a lifestyle and a way for us to preserve Boulder County’s natural resources.

As a county government, we take those priorities to heart and work daily to further the county’s long-term vision for environmental sustainability. First, we strive to lead by example by ensuring that our internal operations are low-impact, resourceful, and efficient. In addition, Boulder County provides services and infrastructure, through public-private partnerships, to help our residents, businesses, and institutions reduce their environmental footprint. Boulder County also proactively supports legislation, policies, education, and community outreach to move our community towards even greater health and economic vitality. All of these efforts are made possible because of strong partnerships within the local community.
