*Sustain Evanston is an informal network of organizations and individuals dedicated to supporting initiatives aimed at improving the sustainability of the Evanston community. The Sustain Evanston group is currently supporting the implementation of Evanston’s Livability Plan, which aims to reduce community greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2016 (relative to a 2005 baseline). This builds on the 13% reduction in emissions already achieved in summer 2013, the goal set in Evanston’s 2008 Climate Action Plan. Facilitated by the Evanston Office of Sustainability, the network meets roughly twice a year to share information about ongoing efforts and explore opportunities to work together on projects of mutual interest.
