The editors note:

"But a more holistic concept of sustainability has clearly taken hold: responsible forest stewardship, clean and green energy, mill and brand reputation, third party certification, taking into account the impact of the digital infrastructure ‒ all are seen as an integral part of responsible and sustainable design."

The Oberlin Project's aim is to revitalize the local economy, eliminate carbon emissions, restore local agriculture, food supply and forestry, and create a new, sustainable base for economic and community development.

The Oberlin Project is one of 18 Clinton Foundation Climate Positive Development Program cities (one of only three in the United States), committing to reducing Oberlin’s greenhouse gas emissions below zero. The City of Oberlin is on target to reduce its emissions by 50% of 2007 levels by 2015, with 90% of its electricity coming from renewable sources.
