A Letter from the executive director Dear Friends,

Jessie Lerner Executive Director, Sustain Dane In July 2013, Jessie stepped into the role of Interim Executive Director following the departure of Kristen Joiner. She was named Executive Director in December 2013.

Since joining Sustain Dane in 2007, I have experienced firsthand the incredible evolution of this dynamic organization, from gathering small discussion groups around kitchen tables to now leading a nationally recognized sustainability program that saves our region nearly one million dollars in costs and 22,000 tons of CO2 emissions each year. I am so proud of everything that we have accomplished to date. Our momentum continues to build. 2013 was a landmark year for Sustain Dane. We reached record numbers in impact and reach in the community. We launched new initiatives like Eat. Play. Bike and Bioneers screenings, and we advanced our ongoing programs to new heights. In late summer, shortly after I took on the role of Executive Director, we unveiled a bold new vision of sustainability leadership for the Greater Madison Region as well as a strategic plan to get us there. As you can see in the following pages of this report, we have spared no time in putting this vision into action. At the center of our vision is you - not only as someone who will experience the lifetime benefits of a healthier, more vibrant, and just community, but as someone who is actively participating in the creation of it. We believe that every single person has the potential and the responsibility to positively contribute to the sustainability and resilience of our community. You, the “sustainability champion,� are our best bet for realizing widespread and lasting change. Live Forward,

Jessie Lerner P.S. Please call or email me directly at any time if you would like to further discuss how we can drive forward this shared vision of a sustainable future.

“C” IS FOR COMPOST On Earth Day, Lapham Elementary kicked off a cafeteria compost and recycling pilot as an MPower Champions project. In one school week, they composted 45lbs of waste and recycled 15lbs of milk and juice boxes. Annually, that would be 88 tons of waste!

CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES, C’mON! 16 area businesses graduated as the 2012 MPower Business Champions as we ushered in 17 new program participants for the fifth year of MPower.

A NEW CHAPTER FOR SUSTAIN DANE In August, following a transition in leadership, we set course for the next exciting chapter of Sustain Dane by unveiling a new vision of sustainability leadership for the Greater Madison Region. Our mission is to foster a rich and diverse community of sustainability champions.

SUSTAINABILITY SPARKS INNOVATION

What is a Sustainability Champion, anyway? At Sustain Dane, we use this term to describe people across all sectors of society who are passionate, curious, and / or actively engaged in sustainability and social change.

230 sustainability champions from across all sectors collaborated on pressing, real-world sustainability challenges at the 5th Annual Badger Bioneers Conference. This unprecedented event was headlined by design thinking, collaborative innovation, and communicating for change.

Sustain Dane believes that sustainability champions are our best leverage point to achieve widespread and lasting change, and so we work to empower, connect, and to support sustainability champions in their diverse and inspiring efforts.

Over 90% of participants said they plan to return for the 2014 Badger Bioneers event!

Our vision Sustain Dane envisions the Greater Madison Region as a national model for sustainability and sustainability innovation.

A Vision of Sustainability Leadership for the greater Madison Region

Our Mission To foster a rich and diverse community of sustainability champions.

Imagine if the Greater Madison Region were a national model for sustainability and sustainability innovation. Imagine if individuals and organizations across all sectors of our society played a part in making our communities more vibrant and healthier places to work, play, and live. Imagine if people flocked to our region to learn about the sustainability success, innovation, and best practices in our schools and universities, local companies, neighborhoods, and municipalities. This is what we imagine to be possible. In 2013, we unveiled a bold new vision of sustainability leadership for the Greater Madison Region as well as a strategic approach to get us there. This new vision sets course for the next exciting chapter of Sustain Dane, a truly grassroots organization that has metamorphosed through many rich and varied programs and initiatives over the past 16 years.

MPower School Champions

MPower Business Champions

MPower School Champions Lapham, Leopold, and Thoreau Elementary and East High School graduated in June after completing 14 sustainability projects, including waste audits, recycling and composting projects, sustainability education, and idling reduction campaigns.

Sustain Dane ushered in 17 new organizations as the 2013 MPower Business Champions, the fifth cohort to participate in the year-long carbon reduction and sustainability program. Results from 2009 to 2012 show that MPower Business Champions have collectively reduced their CO2 emissions by 21,000 tons and $916,000 in related costs annually.

In the fall, Sustain Dane coupled MPower Schools with the GROW Coalition’s Growing Outdoors Classroom Program to bolster support and collaboration for the two complementary programs. Five schools completed the 2012 - 2013 pilot program to build or expand a school garden or outdoor classroom, and five more schools began the program in the fall: Lapham Elementary, Marshall Early Learning Center, Prairie Elementary, Orchard Ridge Elementary, and Sherman Middle School. The program also includes a Professional Learning Community to explore the use of outdoor classrooms in curriculum.

Madison in the national spotlight

Public Speaking engagements

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy visited Madison in September 2013. Mayor Paul Soglin and Sustain Dane cohosted a press event where Administrator McCarthy spoke to the media, MPower program partners, and current and past MPower Champion participants about the success of our MPower Champions Program.

In 2013, we “spread the good word” of our region’s sustainability successes whenever and wherever possible. These are a few of our presentations from this past year:

“We know that the climate is changing, we frankly have to work together to address that issue...in exactly the same thoughtful, sustainable ways that this community, MPower, and Sustain Dane have brought to the table,” McCarthy said. She added, “I can’t tell you how important it is right now that people understand what you already get, and that is, if you’re going to look at a sustainable world, you look at integrating environmental considerations into your business practices.” “When you do that in a whole-hearted, innovative, creative, open way, you will find tremendous opportunities to save money, to grow your business, and to become a much more vital part of the community.”
