HOW DO YOU MEASURE
Local 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. STAR provides a road map to help cities and counties evaluate and improve economic, environmental and social performance measures to become healthier and stronger.
