About Sustainability

What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is the ability to meet our current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Why a Sustainability Plan?
The intent of the City of Collinsville Sustainability Plan is to improve the quality of life for present and future residents by considering the long-term significance of our everyday decisions. 

Why is practicing Sustainability Important?
Sustainable practices support ecological, human, and economic health and vitality. Sustainability presumes that resources are finite, and should be used conservatively and wisely with a view to long-term priorities and consequences of the ways in which resources are used.” In simplest terms, sustainability is about our children and our grandchildren, and the world we will leave them. (UCLA Sustainability Committee)
