Title: Status and trends of sustainability practices in Lane County: an analysis of survey data
Author: Scott, Jennifer P.; Nunez, Tina; Reesor, David; LeVan, Shanda
Abstract: In the spring of 2003, a written survey was mailed to 157 businesses and non-profit organizations in Lane County that were determined to have potentially applied sustainability practices or policies in their operations (i.e. to be considered part of the “sustainability sector”). The goal of the survey was to determine the extent to which sustainability practices are being applied, the types of practices adopted, their costs and benefits, the potential for future growth, and what may be needed to help expand the practices. In June of 2003 a second survey was mailed to 113 public agencies in rural and urban communities from throughout Lane County. This survey sought to determine the extent to which the agencies have applied sustainability practices, the financial, social, and environmental outcomes of those applications, and their interest in doing more. This report summarizes the findings and potential conclusions that can be drawn from the information received from the two surveys. The analysis for of the private sector survey was completed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) and the analysis of the public sector survey was completed using MS Excel.
