SUSTAINABILITY

The City of Newport is working to promote sustainability throughout our community through several initiatives such as the renewable energies ordinance, participating in GreenStep Cities, and providing residents with information on how to be sustainable in their everyday lives.

Sustainability is the commonsense notion that long-term prosperity and ecological health not only go together, they depend on each other. Put another way, sustainability is about actions which are ecologically sound, economically viable, and socially just and humane.

There are many ways you can conserve resources and protect the natural environment. Click on the tabs to the left or the links below to learn more about what the City is doing and what you can do to be sustainable.
