The Sustainable Peterborough Plan defines what a Sustainable Peterborough will look like for the next generation, and sets goals, directions, and actions for balancing the environmental, socio-cultural, and economic pillars of sustainability. Caring communities balancing prosperity, well-being and nature was the vision created by our community to reflect what the Greater Peterborough Area should look like in 25 years.

The Sustainable Peterborough Progress Report 2012-2017 is now available!  The purpose of this report is to provide a document highlighting progress focusing specifically on the Sustainable Peterborough Plan priority action advancements made in the community between 2012 and 2017. The Progress Report highlights the status of each action, provides community results, community accomplishments, identifies implementation challenges, and potential next steps.  The results of this report demonstrate that through collective action, our community can make measurable steps towards balancing prosperity, well-being and nature. This report leads Sustainable Peterborough into a new phase of planning, refreshing strategic direction, action, and future goals.
