Our Vision is Sustainability.

That word gets thrown around a lot. But what does it really mean? Here at Sustain DuPage, we use the commonly accepted definition of “sustainability” as put forward by the United Nation’s 1987 Brundtland Commission Report.

The report defines sustainability as, “ meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

Like many in the field of sustainable community development, here at Sustain DuPage, we like to break it down a step further!



Sustain DuPage believes that in order to truly meet our needs without compromising the needs of future generations, we have to balance economic, environmental, and societal needs.

We at Sustain DuPage envision a DuPage County that has achieved this balance regionally, allowing for future generations of DuPagers to be able to meet their own needs.
