Welcome to Sustainable Arlington

Sustainable Arlington acts on the local level to promote climate stabilization and other important environmental goals.  We are a Town of Arlington Environment Committee under Envision Arlington (formerly Vision 2020) and a chapter of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network.  See our yearly project statement in the Town of Arlington Annual Report, under Community Development and Planning, 

If you have ideas for ways Arlington can reduce home and Town energy consumption, speed up the switch to renewable energy, or manage Arlington's environmental resources more sustainably, please come to one of our  monthly meetings listed on this website.

Thanks for visiting.

From Boston Harbor Now

With the release of the recent Climate Reports, there is a growing consensus that we need to radically reimagine our relationship with the environment and prepare for a future that feels significantly different from today. At Boston Harbor Now, we’re working with the City of Boston to redesign a resilient shoreline that is ready for major storms while welcoming all residents to the waterfront.
