Mission and Purpose: The Green Volusia program is committed to providing excellent service to the citizens of Volusia County by expanding green practices within county operations, educating the public about environmentally responsible practices, and becoming a leader in sustainability. Green Volusia will create positive change that will benefit our citizens now and into the future.
On June 5, 2008, the Green Volusia program was officially adopted by the Volusia County Council as a long-term initiative intended to promote the sustainable use of county resources and educate our citizens.
On February 20, 2014, Volusia County Council adopted the Volusia County Sustainability Action Plan. The Sustainability Action Plan was created through an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block grant. This plan is coordinated through the Green Volusia Program and identifies seven specific sustainability goals:
Provide a Healthy Economy
Maintain a Healthy Environment
Encourage Efficient Transportation and Community Design
Conserve Energy and Promote Water Efficiency
Conserve Energy and Promote Renewable Energy
Reduce Waste and Promote Recycling
"Now, more than ever, it is important to balance environmental and economic considerations in our daily operations. A sustainable future for Volusia County, and our entire region, will be based on solutions that include environmental, economic and social considerations."
