Sustainable Twin Ports

Sustainable Twin Ports is dedicated to furthering sustainability in the Twin Ports through education, networking and action.


Who We Are

Sustainable Twin Ports began as a collaborative project designed to build capacity and momentum around sustainability using The Natural Step framework as a guide.  It was developed by a grass-roots network of community groups in Duluth, MN and Superior, WI in an effort to better understand the challenges and opportunities of sustainability and to move the region toward sustainable solutions.  We have evolved into a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to furthering sustainability initiatives in the Twin Ports region.  We offer training and education and consulting services using The Natural Step framework for sustainability.

The Natural Step is a global not-for-profit organization with a simple mission: to promote real change toward a sustainable world.

The Natural Step Framework is a proven, scientifically robust approach that helps organizations make strategic decisions to move toward sustainability.

Education and Training

We offer several levels of training.  Attend an introductory session, enroll in a seminar, or jump in with both feet and apply for our annual in-depth training session.


If you know you’re ready to create lasting, transformational change for your entire company or organization, it’s time to create a Strategic Sustainability Plan, custom developed in partnership between your entire company and Sustainable Twin Ports. 

We will provide:
- In-house training & facilitation focused on your unique assets and challenges

- Internal ‘train the trainer’ sessions to build your in-house capacity for on-going employee education
