Environmental Sustainability Rotarian Action Group (ESRAG) assists Rotary clubs, districts and multi-districts in planning, implementing and evaluating service projects, building awareness, and inspiring action. These projects promote environmental sustainability in all six of Rotary’s Areas of Focus.

ESRAG fosters the development and dissemination of educational resources, initiates dialogue about environmental sustainability, and uses best practices in models and assessments for both projects and daily choices. This work advances the Object of Rotary of Service Above Self through positive impacts in all six Areas of Focus.
