Green3 Grand Forks is the name of the City of Grand Forks' Sustainability Program and demonstrates the focus on the three elements of sustainability: Fiscal, Social, and Environmental.

Grand Forks began sharpening its focus on sustainability in 2007. The following year, Mayor Michael R. Brown invited community members to participate in a Green3 Resource Committee to make recommendations.

The resource committee developed the Green3 Action Plan which became the city's guide for continuation of ongoing efforts, identification of new efforts and outreach for community-wide involvement.

sus・tain・a・bil・i・ty adj \sə-ˈstā-nə-bil-ə-tē\: The long term maintenance of well being, which has economic, social and environmental dimensions and encompasses the concept of stewardship, the responsible management of resource use.
