Growing Greener

Connecticut’s Sustainability Scene

Some careers can change the world. Working in sustainability not only betters the environment, but it also elicits the reward of making a difference every day you’re on the job. 

Where Sustainability is Flourishing

Locally, doers are powering up a green scene tackling sustainability at every angle — from food production and energy solutions to furniture production, environmental engineering, and beyond. These Connecticut companies are taking root and growing something good. Some are the first of their kind in the nation. And some are working to green-ify their own backyard.

Supporting Green Initiatives

In Connecticut, sustainability isn’t just growing – it’s actively uplifted.

Through Sustainable CT’s Community Match Fund, public sustainability projects receive fast, flexible funding so they can start making a difference quickly. The nonprofit also offers individual certifications and a Climate Leader designation, celebrating towns that are reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions and preparing their communities for the impacts of climate change.

Meanwhile, the Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs is supporting not only the environment but also the livelihoods of workers and their communities. How? By bringing together labor, environmental, social justice, and interreligious organizations to create campaigns that combat climate change, create jobs, and promote racial, economic, and environmental justice.
