In December 2020, Amelia Island Plantation became the 12th community in the world to be designated by Audubon International as a Certified Audubon Sustainable Community. AIP was cited for its outstanding achievements that demonstrate our dedication to planning for a sustainable future.
“By approaching the process comprehensively, by considering natural resource use as well as health and recreation as well as outreach and education, Amelia Island Plantation has proven to be a model for private communities,” wrote Audubon International Environmental Program Manager Kim Hill.
The Sustainable Communities Program is an international, science-based, third-party certification program that guides communities through a customized journey to become healthy and vibrant places in which to live, work, and play. That vision is founded in the three pillars of sustainability: a healthy local environment, quality of life for citizens, and economic vitality.
