Benefits of Membership
Sustainability is an investment in your community–in the well-being of the people, the economy, the environment, and the future.  In many ways, your participation in Audubon International’s Sustainable Communities Program is the first deposit in that investment.  Over time, you’ll invest in other ways as well with money, human capital, time, and effort that help to make your community a healthier, more desirable and more vibrant place in which to live, work, and play.
But what kind of return might you expect on that investment?  In strict financial terms, some of your efforts will pay off immediately and start saving or earning you money.  Other efforts will have an up-front cost, but will have a definite payback period.  Others still will not be as easily measured in economic terms, but will pay off in other ways that are just as meaningful, tangible, and important:
  • A defined future for your community, not left to chance

  • Enhanced community pride

  • Improved environmental quality

  • Enhanced recreational opportunities

  • Increased quality of life

  • Financial savings through more efficient practices

  • Increased desirability of your community, resort, or campus
  • Marketing advantages to promote yourself as a Sustainable Community

  • Increased tourism

  • Heightened cooperation among community constituents

  • Economic development

  • Increased property values

  • A safer place in which to live, work and recreate

  • Recognition as a leader
