photo-jul-21-2-49-15-pmSustainability means different things to different people, so STAR provides a clear, data-driven approach to assessing communities’ sustainability efforts. The STAR framework helps communities assess their efforts in seven key areas and define sustainability for themselves. This robust framework is necessary for communities to credibly track their progress toward overall sustainability objectives and to allow communities to compare progress with each other.

The STAR Community Rating System provides a roadmap to help evaluate, assess and improve communities’ economic, environmental, and social performance measures and become healthier and stronger.

STAR Communities also shares results and stories through case studies and publications and webinars.
