Apex Sustainability Program
APEX SUSTAINABILITY = PEOPLE + PROFIT + PLANET + PEAK
PEOPLE -- Social ------------- Think Community gardens
PROFIT --- Economic -------- Think Affordable housing
PLANET -- Environmental -- Think Habitat preservation
PEAK ------ Apex -------------- Think Zero-waste PeakFest events
Sustainability is ensuring the Peak of Good Living for current AND future generations. The goal is for us to maintain personal, social, economic, and environmental wellness with smart practices today so our families can do the same in decades and centuries to come. Perhaps to do even better than maintain... to THRIVE!
Apex Sustainability branches into 8 central sustainability topics:
Clean Energy, Clean Transportation, Conservation & Efficiency, Waste Management, Green Infrastructure, Community Education, Economics, Resiliency.
A branch of sustainability. Sustainability is a mitigation strategy to prevent a future challenge (Think Playing fetch with your dog).
Resiliency is an adaptation strategy to cope with a current challenge (Think Giving your dog diet supplements instead of exercise).
Individual actions COUNT.
What we do together COUNTS MORE.
