Tacoma’s Approach to Sustainability

Sustainability is a term that describes taking care of the environment, economy, and community in a way that allows present and future generations to thrive. Sustainability is less a specific outcome than a means to an end; it involves taking the long view and recognizing the integrated nature of the world and that natural resources are finite. A sustainable approach embeds these concepts in day-to-day decisions and aligns interests and actions toward shared community goals.

 

Tacoma's Vision

In Tacoma, we strive to achieve an exceptional quality of life for every generation and leave a legacy of stewardship. We work together to achieve lasting and equitable prosperity; build safe, healthy, vibrant communities; and minimize our negative impacts in order to conserve the natural resources that sustain us.
