Warminster Township Recognized as Bronze Certified Sustainable Community

(Warminster, PA – April 22, 2024) Warminster Township announced today it is among a select group of high performing municipalities to become certified through the Sustainable Pennsylvania program. Warminster Township is recognized at the Bronze level of certification for meeting the program’s rigorous performance criteria, which provide a foundational approach for building communities that thrive.

Sustainable Pennsylvania is managed by the Pennsylvania Municipal League (The League), in partnership with Sustainable Pittsburgh, and is designed for municipalities that are working to save money, conserve resources, and serve vibrant communities. The certification is offered statewide, recognizing boroughs, townships, cities, and home rule communities across the Commonwealth. The League and Sustainable Pittsburgh applaud local governments for their demonstrated commitment and sustainability performance.

In earning the Bronze certification, Warminster Township is acknowledged for its progress in such areas as community design and land use, energy efficiency, health and wellness, intergovernmental cooperation, recycling and waste reduction, fiscal controls, and internal management and operations. Details about Warminster Township’s certification performance within these topics can be found at SustainablePA.org.

“Warminster Township is proud to be recognized as a Bronze certified community by Sustainable Pennsylvania,” said Township Manager Tom Scott. “The municipality has a long history of commitment to saving taxpayer dollars, using resources efficiently, and applying best practices in municipal operations and community development. We are pleased to be recognized and be part of this statewide community of good governance.”

“We are delighted to see Warminster Township distinguished among local governments that are leading the way in applying sustainability to both their operations and management as well as within the community,” said John Brenner, Executive Director of The League.

Sustainable Pennsylvania is intended to bring recognition to municipalities that are implementing the policies and practices of sustainability to advance community and regional prosperity. The program provides strategies, resources, and recognition to municipalities for improving quality of life and expanding opportunities for everyone.

“Sustainability requires a foundational approach that simultaneously integrates social equity, environmental stewardship, and economic development in decision-making,” said Joylette Portlock, Ph.D., Executive Director of Sustainable Pittsburgh. “Sustainable Pennsylvania provides municipal governments and stakeholders clear and recognizable sustainability objectives to share, so that they can foster thriving and vibrant communities, built to last.”
