The Office of Sustainability is brand new to Delaware County in 2021! Our charge is to make Delaware County and its operations more sustainable and resilient to the effects of climate change. We’re doing this by examining government operations, engaging with the community, and working with the new Sustainability Commission to develop a long-term Sustainability and Climate Action Plan.
Opportunities for you to get engaged:
