Wilmette Sustainability Plan

The Greenest Region Compact (GRC) is a collaboration of over 70 communities working towards creating a more sustainable region. It was created by bringing together common goals and practical strategies from all 275 member communities of the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus.

The consensus goals of the Compact address ten areas, including climate, economic development, energy, land, leadership, mobility, municipal operations, sustainable communities, water, and waste & recycling. These goals help guide coordinated efforts across the region to enhance quality of life for residents, protection and stewardship of the environment, and sustainable economic vitality.

The GRC provides a companion Framework document, which municipalities can use as a guide to implement their own sustainability plans. The Village’s Environmental & Energy Commission has drafted a comprehensive sustainability plan for the Village in accordance with the goals of the Greenest Region Compact. At their September 28, 2021 meeting, the Village Board of Trustees voted to adopt Wilmette’s Greenest Region Compact (GRC2) Sustainability Plan! Click here to view the plan.
