The New Jersey Sustainability Summit is a momentous event in our state, drawing change-makers from across the political, private, and public sectors. This exceptional one-day forum spotlights the successes and lessons learned from the people and projects that are helping New Jersey realize a more sustainable future. 2022 Summit attendees walked away with tangible resources and strategies to assist with their own community initiatives. This is your opportunity to do the same. We invite all who are interested to be ready to deepen their understanding and expand their network.

EV Ride & Drive and EV Fleet Showcase
Take an electric vehicle (EV) for a spin! Our friends at DEP and the NJ Electric Vehicle Association will be hosting an EV Ride & Drive and EV Showcase with the latest electric vehicles from dealers and owners across the region.
Bring solutions back to your community! The Sustainability Exhibit is not your typical business expo. It’s your opportunity to meet experts and learn about new products hitting the market and available resources and strategies to enhance your sustainability efforts. Stay tuned for a listing of confirmed businesses, state agencies, and nonprofits exhibiting in this year's event.
This annual event presents the opportunity for municipal and school district officials and staff, environmental commission and green team members to connect with each other and with state agency, non-profit, academic, and business representatives making change happen. Gain tips for success and potentially join forces on projects to have a more regional impact!
Post-Summit Happy Hour
After the event we will be hosting a cash bar "happy hour" to keep those connections going at Bar Bella's indoor and outdoor lounges. Don't drink? Don't worry. Grab a coffee, snack or mocktail from one of the Bell Works shops and bring it on the patio.
Unique Location - Bell Works
We are returning to Bell Works, the historic former Bell Labs building. Located just minutes from the Garden State Parkway (exit 114) and the Hazlet NJ Transit stop. Parking will be available in the blue colored lot on the southeast end of the main building. View the parking map.
The lovely grounds will invite you to take your networking and lunch outdoors for a walk around the lake, or a chill on the patio.
Bring your EV! Six Level 2 charging stations are conveniently located in the Blue (3) and Red (3) lots. These Charge Point chargers cost $1.50 per hour.
