We at the Iron Range Partnership for Sustainability love the Range, just like you do. We want to see it thrive. We want our children and our grandchildren and your children and grandchildren and their children into the future to experience a robust Iron Range that is as safe and beautiful as we have known it. Don’t you? Join us and sustain it for all our children.

Our Mission

IRPS facilitates collaboration towards a sustainable and thriving Iron Range.

The goal of IRPS is to build connections between community, economy, and environment to promote sustainable living in northeastern Minnesota.

How does the Iron Range Partnership for Sustainability (IRPS) define sustainability?

Sustainability can best be defined by asking another question – how can we meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. 

What is a Sustainable Community?

A sustainable community seeks to maintain and improve the economic, environmental and social characteristics of an area so its members can continue to lead healthy, productive, enjoyable lives there.       

Three Areas of Sustainability
