One Planet Community Principles


As the first One Planet Community endorsed in North America, Sonoma Mountain Village is guided by a framework of 10 principles within a One Planet Sustainability Action Plan. The Action Plan sets targets for our residents ecological footprint.

Today, the average American has a lifestyle, if emulated by the rest of the world's population would require 5 planets worth of resources. Our goal is to create a community where people can live a much more sustainable, one planet lifestyle.

The plan and initiative was created with experts at BioRegional UK who worked in collaboration with WWF International to work towards achieving a "one planet " ecological footprint. Learn more about ecological footprints here.
