​Environmental Sustainability Plan

​​​In 2004, Mecklenburg County’s Board of County Commissioners passed the Environmental Leadership Policy:

"The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners desires that County government operate in a manner that conserves and protects our air, water and land resources, become a model of environmental stewardship for local governments, business and industry in our region, and use and apply the County's existing and future resources wisely for the benefit of its citizens."
​​ 

To pursue this mission, the Environmental Leadership Policy identified 12 guiding principles:
