Joint Environmental Task Force

The Joint Environmental Task Force, or JET, was formed in April 2019 by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County School Board. The JET's mission is to join the political and administrative capabilities of the county and the school system to proactively address climate change and environmental sustainability. The final meeting of the JET was held in January 2022. Meeting information and materials can be found here.

The JET aims to set and meet aggressive goals in areas of common influence such as workforce development, infrastructure and sustainability of public facilities and transportation, land use planning, communication, and community engagement. The JET provides a forum for collaboration and alignment of institutional policies and practices.

Since its inception, the JET has organized subcommittees around four specific focus areas: Energy, Transportation, Waste Reduction/Recycling, and Workforce Development. More information on the mission and focus areas of the JET is available here.

In October 2020, the JET issued a final report with recommendations from each of the four subcommittees.
