Sustainable Peterborough

strategic plan cover pageSustainable Peterborough (SP) is a community based regional partnership historically comprised of community groups, businesses, educational institutions, local governments and First Nations.  SP evolved out of an informal group of individuals and organizations who started meeting at the dawn of the new millennium under the name of Sustainability Network.  Their work led to the creation of the Sustainable Peterborough Plan.  In the spring of 2012 the City of Peterborough, the County of Peterborough, its eight Townships, and the two First Nations adopted the Greater Peterborough Area Community Sustainability Plan.  SP is overseen by the Sustainable Peterborough Coordinating Committee, an advisory committee to local government. Sustainable Peterborough has been operating under the auspices of Peterborough & the Kawarthas Economic Development since its inception in 2012, and a recent governance review has led to the mutually supported decision that this relationship continues. 

Sustainable Peterborough has spent the last couple of years conducting an extensive organizational review, including a governance and plan review. This comprehensive work facilitated many insightful conversations and led to the decision that the new Sustainable Peterborough Plan should focus on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sustainable Peterborough (SP) and Peterborough & the Kawarthas Economic Development (PKED) are pleased to announce the launch of Sustainable Peterborough’s new Strategic Plan.
