Task Forces

Do you have expertise in energy, health and wellness, or waste management?  Sustainable Jersey is supported by 15 issue-based task forces that help maintain the integrity and substance of the certification program.  Hundreds of leaders in New Jersey volunteer to serve on the Sustainable Jersey Task Forces from academia, the non-profit sector, the business community and state, local, federal and county government. The task forces research and disseminate best practices, translate global and state imperatives into local actions, test sustainability planning models and develop community resources for the program.  Learn about the issue areas each task force covers below.
