West Hartford


The Town of West Hartford strives to be sustainable – working to solve economic, environment, and social (equity) challenges, address climate change, and build a thriving, resilient community for all. These are global problems requiring global solutions, but local action can have a big impact.

The Town of West Hartford does not have a Sustainability Office or Department.  Many different departments lead sustainability initiatives with the ultimate goal of sustainability being a shared responsibility, embedded into everyday decision-making and operations. The Sustainable West Hartford Commission advises Town Council and to works to advance sustainability through education, action, and collaboration with the Town, the West Hartford community, and beyond.

This webpage is designed to help people more easily locate information about Town sustainability initiatives, learn how to take action themselves, and find resources to get started. Everyone can play a role in creating a more Sustainable West Hartford. After all, it is Our Town, Our Planet, Our Future.
