Their Mission Statement

Sustainable South Bronx (SSBx) works to address economic and environmental issues in the South Bronx through a combination of green job training, community greening programs, and social enterprise.

Summary of Impact

SSBx received the 2010 Environmental Protection Agency's Region 2 Environmental Quality Award for contributions to improving the environment and public health.   SSBx champions hope and opportunity for our community and other urban communities by delivering integrated economic and environmental solutions through innovative job training, public advocacy and educational programs.  SSBx played a critical role in ensuring the passage of the Green Jobs/Green New York legislation, which creates a demand for retrofitting existing buildings to offer pathways out of poverty through green-collar jobs with career ladders.    Bronx Environmental Stewardship Training (BEST) Academy, the job training program of SSBx, to date has trained over 300 individuals for employment. BEST has had a 90% graduation rate and 82% job retention rate over three years.  We provide job training and placement to  populations that have faced significant barriers to employment.   SSBx embarked on sustainable ventures with SmartRoofs LLC, a green roof/green wall installation company to raise the profile of green technologies, generate income for SSBx and employ BEST graduates.      GOALS: Expand training programs to offer skills and certifications in high-demand trades, reducing unemployment and under-employment;     Continue to promote greening the South Bronx and other Environmental Justice communities in New York City, reducing brownfields and turning more parking spaces into parks;   Encourage healthy eating and exercise through community and school programs and presentations;   And promote improved air quality by working with trucking company fleets to retrofit trucks to reduce polluting the air with suffocating exhaust fumes.
