"Sustainability" refers to the ability to meet present needs without jeopardizing the needs of the future. Sustainable practices work under the premise that natural resources are finite, and that avoiding waste supports ecological, human, and economic health.
Why We Prioritize Sustainable Practices
The City of Coronado works to minimize its ecological footprint for a simple reason: Everything that humans need for our survival and health depends in some way on our natural environment. Ensuring natural resources are conserved and considered helps to make sure that humans can continue to exist in harmony with our environment and support our future generations.
