About the Sustainability Commission

The Sustainability Commission, comprised of 10 Deerfield resident volunteers nominated by the Mayor and appointed by the Board of Trustees, advises the Mayor and Board of Trustees, works with Village staff, and acts as a resource for the Deerfield community on environmental issues. We identify and encourage the use of sustainable practices by our Village and we act as a resource to the residents, organizations and businesses of our community by assisting them to live and work in a manner that reduces their impact on the natural environment. Toward that end, we have established the following statements to guide our efforts.  

 
 

Vision Statement:

“The Sustainability Commission’s Vision is that Deerfield optimize its potential in environmentally sound practices, thereby improving the quality of our local environment for the benefit of our citizens, businesses and neighbors.”

 

Mission Statements:

 

“ To educate and actively engage the Deerfield community regarding the benefits of living sustainably.

 

To make environmental information and resources readily available.

 

To create partnerships with interested parties help achieve our mutual sustainable goals.

 

To recommend sustainable initiatives which are fiscally responsible and enhance our economic vitality.”
