North Dakota Sustainability

North Dakota Sustainability Input

North Dakotans from all backgrounds are invited to share ideas to meet the state’s goals of creating vibrant economies and finding innovative ways to reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) held a series of listening sessions throughout the state from October 30 through November 8, 2023. Each session had a specific focus area and participants were invited to attend in-person or via ZOOM.

All sessions were recorded, and information collected will be used to develop the North Dakota Sustainability Plan. North Dakota received funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) program to support this effort.
