  • An overview of the activities and accomplishments of the Environmental Commission, which was created by the Board of Supervisors in July 2021.
  • An overview of the proposed Environment and Energy Work Plan for Fiscal Year 2023 to be managed by the Department of General Services, which focuses on five key topic areas:
    • Energy sustainability, including clean and renewable energy usage. 
    • Enhancing natural resources, such as trees, wildlife, watersheds and land conservation.
    • Environmental justice, which examines the impact of environmental issues on underserved populations.
    • “Government by example,” which includes programs to enhance the sustainability of Loudoun County government operations. 
    • Increasing public engagement in environmental and sustainability initiatives.

The Environmental Summit follows a June 2022 public input meeting on the development of an updated energy strategy for the county and a November 2021 meeting soliciting comment from Loudoun residents and businesses on local environmental and sustainability topics.
