The City of Indianapolis Office of Sustainability is a professional office created by Mayor Ballard to be the driving force behind SustainIndy.  The Office provides a structure for implementation and policy recommendations for SustainIndy.

The main charges of the Office of Sustainability are to:

  1. Lead sustainability efforts within city government
  2. Coordinate and collaborate on community sustainability goals - including acting as primary liaison to the City of Indianapolis Green Commission, and
  3. Establish public-private partnership opportunities to move forward aggressively on achieving the vision of a more sustainable Indianapolis.

Sustainability has many different definitions. For us, sustainability means using best practices to create lasting environmental, economic and community vitality – enhancing our quality of life now and ensuring that future generations of Indianapolis residents have an equally good quality of life.
