The Sustainability Commission is established to optimize Deerfield's potential in environmentally sound practices, thereby improving the quality of our local environment for the benefit of our citizens, businesses and neighbors with respect to sustainability, meaning the use of resources such that they do not become depleted or permanently damaged and requiring the balance of environmental, economic and social demands.


The Sustainability Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and Board of Trustees, to the Village administration and to the Deerfield community to optimize the potential of the Village in environmentally sound practices with a view toward improving the local environment for the benefit of our citizens, businesses and neighbors. The group discusses and promotes sustainable living through education and advocacy. 

The Sustainability Commission maintains the "Green up Deerfield" section of the Village's website.
