Environmental Vision

Fairfax County’s environment is resilient, but not indestructible. Our vision recognizes that we have a responsibility to be good stewards to Environment Visionensure a sustainable future.

While it is not an action plan, the vision is important because it helps to guide our environmental sustainability initiatives and programs. Two key principles direct the vision:

  • First, we must conserve our limited natural resources.
  • Second, we are committed to providing the resources needed to protect our environment.

The vision connects to how the county provides services, and it focuses on seven core service areas:

  • Land Use
  • Transportation
  • Water
  • Waste Management
  • Parks and Ecological Resources
  • Climate and Energy
  • Environmental Stewardship
