Burlington Sustainability Partnership
The Burlington Sustainability Partnership is a unique, collaborative endeavor between the City of Burlington, the University of Vermont, Fletcher Allen Health Care, Champlain College, the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Burlington Business Association, and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission. Its current work plan involves using the STAR Community Rating System. The STAR Community Rating System (STAR) is the nation’s first framework and certification program for local sustainability, built by and for local governments and the communities they serve. The Rating System encompasses economic, environmental, and social performance measures for both local governments and the broader community. View the group's Purpose and Values Statement here.
