Sustainable Maryland actions are designed with flexibility to meet the varying needs of all municipalities. Each action description below outlines benefits, steps for completion, certification points, municipal spotlights, and resources. Review the requirements to earn Bronze or Silver certification here. Many actions have variable points, which means there are several ways to complete the action. Achieve any one of the designated point levels within an action to consider it complete.

Access your municipality's application for certification through the Municipal Dashboard.
