Are there any projects in the United States that are ecologically, economically and socially sustainable?

I have read about some of the projects that many countries are doing to become sustainable. Denmark's Waste-to-energy Plant and Ski slope is a good project that is ecologically, economically and socially sustainable. What is the United States doing in order to become sustainable? Any big projects coming up?
