Sustainability Action Plan

The Sustainability Action Plan was recently unanimously passed by the Board of Selectmen. This document represents nearly a year and a half of hard work from the Sustainability Commission. Below you can the purpose, vision, and mission statement of the document:

Purpose: To meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability is all about improving the quality of life for all Norwood residents, while best positioning the town to obtain the benefits of the four commonly accepted “pillars” of Sustainability (Social, Economic, Equity, and Environmental).

Vision Statement: Our vision is to create a culture of sustainability that will be fully integrated into our community for the benefit of present and future generations.

Mission Statement: To help develop a culture of sustainability in our community through a partnership with all residents, government and businesses utilizing innovation, education, communication, comprehensive, and strategic planning in an equitable way.
