SC-AZ has conducted interviews with individuals from corporations, businesses, and non-profit organizations in the field of sustainability. The majority of those interviewed are in agreement that what is missing is the individual’s understanding of the impact that their actions have on the community. This is the important link needed to move our communities toward sustainability. Some of the supporters’ comments are as follows:

 
“I applaud SC-AZ for helping every Arizonan to better understand and contribute to sustainability. As our state approaches its centennial in 2012, it is exciting and appropriate to be thinking and acting on how to make Arizona sustainable.”
Ken Bennett
Arizona Secretary of State
 
“I think what Bill and his team are doing is terrific! The passion and momentum for creating sustainable communities is strong, and having a group like Sustainable Communities AZ to bring it all together, from business to education to individuals, it’s definitely what we need.”

“Sustainable Communities AZ is taking the message of sustainability and empowering citizens to take action. Their effectiveness stems from their ability to go places where other sustainability organizations have not.”

“Sustainable Communities AZ is a critically important initiative for Arizona.

 “If we are to manage and sustain our resources, we need to begin locally. We support the efforts of Sustainable Communities AZ in Arizona, as well as throughout the Nation and globally. This will promote and progress healthy economies, higher wages, increased employment, conservation of natural resources and will continue strengthening the inner fabric of all communities.”

“SC-AZ is doing a great and much-needed job of sharing information about sustainability and living a greener lifestyle to communities in Arizona. “Going Green”, greener lifestyles and sustainable living can mean experiencing an incredibly abundant way of life and SC-AZ is playing a key role in helping communities across the state understand what that can mean for them and how they go about achieving it. We support SC-AZ’s efforts; they are doing a fabulous job.”
