Mission and purpose
The Green Volusia program was established to expand green practices within county government operations and to provide information and education about environmentally responsible practices that benefit the community as a whole. The Green Volusia program has many goals which include encouraging stewardship and conservation of Volusia County's natural resources and promoting an understanding of the benefits provided by these natural resources.
The Green Volusia program coordinates the Volusia County Sustainability Action Plan which was adopted on February 20, 2014. The plan identifies seven specific sustainability goals including providing a healthy economy, maintaining a healthy environment, promoting a healthy community, encouraging efficient transportation and community design, conserving water and promoting water efficiency, conserving energy and promoting renewable energy, and reducing waste and promoting recycling.
