In recent years, the Village of Mundelein has placed a significant focus on furthering sustainability efforts through the implementation of green initiatives, programs, projects, and policies. In 2018, the Village was awarded the Illinois Sustainability Award by the University of Illinois Prairie Research Institute. The Village's sustainability efforts have substantially reduced the environmental impact of Village operations, services, and community activity.

In 2014, the Village finished construction on a new LEED Gold certified Village Hall which spurred a continuous effort to place a special focus on sustainability efforts in all aspects of our organization and community. As a result, the Village has implemented several programs and has made changes to Village operations and polices which minimize negative environmental impacts of necessary services and activities.

Major sustainability projects implemented by the Village of Mundelein include:

New Village Hall – LEED Gold Certified Municipal Building
LED Lighting Retrofit Program
