Abstract

In broad terms, sustainability is an almost-inarguable objective. But how do we put it into practice? Varying time horizons, implementation costs, winners and losers, specific targets, paths and actions, regulations, and priorities become an overwhelming web of variables to untangle. Some form of this complex challenge faces every business, family, and government across our planet. Avoiding this challenge is likely to be catastrophic.

Through SM-690 Capstone, our team was given the opportunity to develop a Sustainability Management Plan for the municipality of West Orange, NJ. This presentation will describe the teamwork, plan development process, presentation development, and impacts of our capstone.
