 strives to provide a framework under which decision making and planning for the city may occur. This framework is based on the triple bottom line concept and embraces the interdependence of environmental qualityeconomic growth, and social justice. Underpinning all activities with this philosophy ensures that the city develops in a sustainable and resilient manner. This is a form of growth and development that provides for the needs of present generations without compromising the ability of future generations to prosper in a clean and healthy environment. 


Sustainability: 
The City of Sunland Park strives to forever keep in mind how best to design construction maintainable over time that causes the least impact on the environment. This needs to be done by balancing near-term interests alongside the protection of future generations. The city embraces the interdependence of environmental quality, economic growth, and social justice, which strives to keep all operations and endeavors in line with the triple bottom line. 

ConservationThe City of  Sunland Park strives to be a good steward of the natural resources available in order to prevent depletion, prevent pollution, and to do no harm to the environment. We strive to reduce energy consumption by seeking renewable sources, curtailing waste generation through recycling programs, and eliminating dependence on fossil fuels. 

Restoration: The City of Sunland Park works hard to clean up environmentally degraded ecosystems, in particular our riparian corridor. We actively seek funding sources and resources for restoration of brownfields within the city. 

ComplianceThe City of Sunland Park's facilities and operations will meet or exceed standards and regulations for compliance with state and federal environmental regulations. 

Leadership: The City of Sunland Park's staff and community activists will lead from the front, striving to be keystone models and educators in environmental stewardship. Personal gain will never impede Sunland Park staff from “doing the right thing” in environmental matters. 

Continuous Improvement: The City of Sunland Park continuously reviews its environmental program, targeting opportunities for improvement, implementing necessary changes in light of the triple bottom line: the nexus of environmental quality, economic growth and social justice.
