OUR History

In 2012, Sustainable Kingston was created as a non-profit organization by the City of Kingston. The organization's purpose is to support the Kingston community in achieving its vision of becoming Canada's most sustainable city.

In collaboration with the City of Kingston, Sustainable Kingston works to develop and implement the Sustainable Kingston Action Plan.

Together we are driving measurable progress towards sustainability.

The Sustainable Kingston Board of Directors and the City of Kingston have approved the Sustainable Kingston 2016-2020 Strategic Plan.

The new plan is characterized by Sustainable Kingston having a more active role in developing meaningful programs that will help us achieve organizational and community goals.

Current programs include:

Each spring, we publish an Annual Report highlighting our accomplishments, challenge, and organization aspiration of the previous year.
