What is Environmental Stewardship?


Environmental stewardship is an ethic which embodies cooperative planning and management of our resources. Environmental stewardship inspires communities to actively engage and allows us to recognize that we are all caretakers of the environment and economy for the benefit of present and future generations.

Environmental stewardship allows us to balance the impacts of our decisions today with the needs of future generations – this ethic also includes safeguarding the health of resources such as water, air, soil and species biodiversity.
