STAR Communities - 4-STAR Certified
Louisville is rated as a 4-STAR Community through the STAR Community Rating System.
See the results of the assessment, submitted in January 2015, on the Sustainability Tools for Assessing & Rating (STAR) Communities website.
The Office of Sustainability partnered with the Louisville Sustainability Council to collect data that provided the basis for 44 sustainability metrics. In 2014, Louisville was selected as one of 19 cities to be mentored through the non-profit, STAR Communities. Louisville received a scholarship from STAR Communities and funding from the Louisville Sustainability Council to make participation possible.

STAR is the nation’s first standardized framework for evaluating the sustainability of cities. Its comprehensive set of local environmental, economic and social metrics was developed by more than 200 technical experts in order to drive competition and continuous improvement in city sustainability results and practices.
