Sustainable Princeton arose out of a partnership between the Princeton Environmental Commission, the New Jersey Sustainability State Institute and in consultation with the residents of Princeton. Initial funding for a part-time Sustainability Coordinator and an intern was provided by a grant of $15,000 from a local family foundation and $7,500 each from the Borough and Township of Princeton.

Our initial goals were captured in the Sustainable Princeton Community Plan, finalized in 2009.

We have been making progress towards these initial goals, as outlined in the Municipal Green Report.
