HOW DO YOU MEASURE
COMMUNITY SUSTAINABILITY?

The STAR Community Rating System (STAR) is the nation’s first framework and certification program for local sustainability, built by and for local governments and the communities they serve. The Rating System encompasses economic, environmental, and social performance measures for both local governments and the broader community.
