Fairfax County’s environment is resilient, but not indestructible. Our vision recognizes that we have a responsibility to be good stewards to ensure 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
- Waste Management
- Parks and Ecological Resources
- Climate and Energy
- Environmental Stewardship
