"The days of a false choice between environmental protection and economic growth are over."
– Ron Nirenberg, San Antonio Mayor
Welcome to Sustainable San Antonio. Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo. We believe in thinking differently, to innovate and make a better, more prosperous future.
If you are the kind of person who thinks differently and wants to have more control over the every day aspects of your life, we believe sustainability is for you. And with enlightened self-interest, everyone will come to see how sustainability provides a more resilient, livable world for ourselves, our children and generations to come.
We believe sustainable practices are part of the natural laws of nature, economics and society, that when authentically practiced, will create world wide climate wealth providing a healthier and more profitable existence for all.
Come learn why we believe sustainability is for everyone, is important to everyone's present and future and what it means and requires to be sustainable.
In an effort to facilitate discussion and answer questions about sustainability, Sustainable San Antonio has been developed to serve as a community platform to disseminate information and educate ourselves about the benefits of building a more resilient society.
Our goal is to bring together the general public, researchers, policy makers and subject matter experts so we all may have a better understanding of what we can do to have a ubiquitous lifestyle of sustainability that builds prosperity, profitability and return on investment.
We look forward to working with community members to demonstrate how sustainable products, services and practices produce a more thriving economy, viable society and healthful environment for San Antonio and our global community.
