Our Goal: Invest in people to create a healthy, livable and safe community 

 
People are a fundamental element of the Earth and its natural systems. To survive and thrive, humans need productive land, clean water and air, and abundant energy. However, by our very nature and daily activities – how we live, work and play, we consume resources, generate waste and cause impacts to local air, water and land resources. As stewards of the environment, we need to reduce our consumption and waste, and manage our local environments in a manner that improves local air and water quality, while supporting and enhancing natural heritage biodiversity.
