In 2015, the Somerset County Green Leadership Hub's Steering Committee was established. The members of the Hub are knowledgeable and experienced in the various sectors of the Sustainable Jersey Program. The Steering Committee is charged with advising the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders about municipal involvement in Sustainable Jersey, providing information about programs, resources, and partnership opportunities to our communities, and promoting a public understanding about the importance of local and regional resiliency and sustainability.

The Steering Committee meets quarterly, or as needed based on current programs and initiatives. The Steering Committee is comprised of 11 members, with 2 members serving as Core Members, 6 members serving as Subject Matter Experts, and 3 members representing Local Government and Green Teams. The Steering Committee is staffed by the Somerset County Planning Division.
