The Town of Cary is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its operations as well as the services we provide to the community. Our goal is to balance environmental stewardship with cost-effective solutions that make sense for our community.
Sustainability is in the Department of Transportation and Facilities, but sustainability-focused projects can be found in all departments across the Town of Cary. The Sustainability Manager position was created in 2010 to identify opportunities for the Town to lead by example on sustainability.
We foster creativity in problem-solving and provide support and resources to many different projects across multiple departments. In addition to creating systems to ensure we meet our environmental and fiscal goals, we also pursue grants, and manage pilot projects to determine if ideas that come into our office are viable, scalable, and sustainable to turn into larger programs. When considering projects for the Town, our focus is to provide more efficient and effective services.
