2021 Certification Application Cycle
Sustainable Jersey operates on a once a year submission cycle, with an initial certification application submission deadline. Only those applicants that submit by the initial deadline will be considered for certification that year. See the chart below for details on the structure and timing of the application cycle.
Note: Any actions that are marked approved and expire after the initial submission deadline do not need to be updated in your application. Once the application is submitted, these actions will be set to expire at the end of the year.
Important Note for Municipalities Expiring in 2021
Sustainable Jersey understands that municipal operations were impacted by the COVID pandemic, and that initiatives such as Sustainable Jersey certification, may need to be put on hold to manage the needs of the community. Municipalities with certifications expiring in December 2021 that are still facing challenges because of the pandemic may request an extension of its Sustainable Jersey certification to December 2022. Extension requests must be received no later than the certification deadline of June 6, 2021. To submit an extension request, email a letter signed by a municipal official or the green team leader requesting the extension due to COVID pandemic related issues/priorities to firstname.lastname@example.org.
