Sustainable Jersey Certified Community

Sustainable Jersey representatives have announced that Vernon has met the rigorous requirements to achieve Sustainable Jersey certification for the second consecutive year, one of only 208 in the state and will be honored at the Sustainable Jersey awards luncheon on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 in Atlantic City.

Certified towns are an outstanding group of municipalities that are making important contributions toward the long-term goal of a sustainable New Jersey and world.

To become Sustainable Jersey certified, Vernon submitted documentation to show it had completed a balance of the required sustainability actions, meeting a minimum of 150 action points. In addition to reaching 150 points, each certified community had to create a green team and select at least 2 out of 12 priority action options.
