About EcoAction Partners
EcoAction Partners was formed in 2007 to implement sustainability efforts in San Miguel county. The 501c3 non-profit organization is funded by the Town of Telluride, Town of Mountain Village, San Miguel County, the Telluride Foundation, TMVOA, and San Miguel Power Association.
EcoAction Partners coordinates and manages efforts that contribute to balanced regional sustainability. These efforts encompass the three tenants of sustainability: Natural Resources and Ecology, Society and Culture, and Local Economy. In addition to the role of coordinating entity, the annual work plan will emphasize energy conservation (including enhanced green building standards), renewable energy, food security, waste reduction, environmentally responsible waste disposal and recycling programs, and relocalization efforts. Five working groups have been developed to address these issues, and are comprised of TNCC staff and community members.
