Participation in Sustainable Jersey is FREE and voluntary
Sustainable Jersey is a nonprofit organization and participation in the program is not mandated by the state of New Jersey.
To become a Sustainable Jersey Certified municipality, the municipality must first be registered with the program. Registering does not commit a municipality to attain certification. Only municipalities or organizations formally designated to represent the municipality may register.
Pass a Resolution to Participate
In order for a municipality to join the Sustainable Jersey program the municipality will need to pass a resolution stating its intent to seek Sustainable Jersey certification and designate an entity to be in charge of the process. Please note this resolution is not the same as the Green Team resolution required for certification.
Sign-In or Sign Up for a Website Account
The person responsible for registering the municipality must be signed in if they have an existing account or sign up for a website account on the Sustainable Jersey website.
Register a Municipality Online
Once signed into your account, fill out the registration fields in the online registration form by providing municipal contact information and uploading a copy of the resolution to participate.
Please allow up to one week to process your registration. Once approved a confirmation email will be sent.
Benefits of Registration
There are numerous benefits to registration including:
- Applying for funding to support sustainability initiatives through the Sustainable Jersey Grants Program
- Gaining statewide recognition by applying for certification
- Using the Sustainable Jersey registered logo
