SGA works with local government, community and private sector leaders to help communities make the changes they need to build a healthy and sustainable future. Through community-wide sustainability planning, project design and implementation, educational conferences and forums, community network development, consulting, and programs, SGA is a catalyst for local community solutions to global environmental issues. 
SGA’s work covers a broad range of sustainability topic areas, including: energy efficiency and renewable energy, waste reduction in schools and other institutions, local and sustainable food systems, food waste reduction and recovery, open space and ecosystem enhancement, and sustainability education.
SGA is indebted to the many Indigenous tribes that stewarded this land, and whose philosophies continue to inspire everything we do. We live, work on, and care for the ancestral lands of the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi nations, among many others.
