Engaging sustainable practices that fully integrate the economy with the environment, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Sustainability Division partners with businesses and organizations to promote sustainable practices and continuous improvement systems that lessen environmental impact and protect resources for future generations.
The partnership offers different sustainability paths for large or small businesses and organizations. Most larger businesses, those whose operations impact the environment in multiple ways, join the Environmental Management System (EMS) path. Those smaller businesses whose environmental impact is confined to an office setting join the Sustainable Office Toolkit (SOT) path. So, you'll first need to determine which path is best for you and read the criteria sheets for that path. You can also look over the SOT guidebook and modules. When you feel ready to join the partnership, fill out the pre-application form for your level.
