What is "Sustainability"?

"Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." 

Brundtland Commission Report, 1987

Sustainable Twin Ports envisions a thriving Greater Duluth-Superior region that balances the economic, social and environmental needs of its people in ways that nurture shared prosperity for all.

STP’s mission is to help cultivate a community of practice among businesses, organizations and citizens wherein sustainability is the norm and successes inform and inspire the efforts of like-minded communities.

We fulfill this mission by fostering opportunities for education, knowledge-sharing and networking for businesses, organizations and individuals.

Using the internationally recognized Natural Step framework, we guide organizations through the process of developing a customized sustainability action plan that can improve operational efficiency, elevate brand reputation and generate long-term competitive advantages - all while minimizing negative environmental and social impacts.

We also conduct education and public outreach through strategic partnerships and special events. Founded in 2008 as a nonprofit, STP is powered by volunteers and the desire to take positive action toward creating a sustainable future for everyone in the Western Lake Superior region.
