STAR Communities is a nonprofit organization that works to evaluate, improve and certify sustainable communities.
We administer the STAR Community Rating System (STAR) the nation’s first framework and certification program for local sustainability. Cities and counties use STAR to measure their progress across social, economic and environmental performance areas.
Review our 2-page flyer for more information.
The STAR Community Rating System was initiated and supported by founding partners ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability USA, the U.S. Green Building Council, National League of Cities and the Center for American Progress. Our work is supported through membership subscriptions and generous foundation grants from these national philanthropic organizations.
