Greenest Region CompactThe Village of Mount Prospect participates in the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus Greenest Region Compact (GRC), which promotes sustainability in Chicago communities across the region with an emphasis on building strong and vibrant communities. 

The foundation of the GRC are 49 high-level goals that have been reached by consensus; not only are the goals aligned with important local, regional, national and global goals, but they also have support from 100 communities that have adopted the GRC. GRC consensus goals guide municipal action, support mayors in their role as environmental leaders, and foster collaboration that will have positive impacts on the region.

By adopting the GRC by formal resolution, the Village has agreed to work to achieve the GRC goals in our community and in collaboration with other municipalities across the region. To date, 100 communities have adopted the GRC to improve quality of life for more than 5 million residents.

The GRC serves as a guiding document to help prioritize sustainable actions and articulate our commitment to a sustainable future. 

The items listed below are actions, initiatives or programs that the Village currently undertakes and how they relate to the GRC.
