Sustainable State of the State Reports
In 2015 the first Sustainable State of the State Report (SSSR) was issued following a two year process of stakeholder engagement, research and expert consultation to evaluate the current state of sustainability in New Jersey. The report suggest 57 goals that define our vision of sustainability for New Jersey as a whole. Each goal has indicators that provide clues as to how the State as a whole is doing in achieving these sustainability goals. Each goal is assessed based on whether the indicators and other data suggest we are making adequate progress.
The reports consist of a Summary Report and Technical Report. The summary reports provide an update on the goals and indicators, while the technical reports contain the data, sources and analysis that support the summary reports.
These reports are typically released at Sustainable Jersey's annual Sustainability Summit in June. For more information on the Sustainability Summit, click here.
