Promote Higher Levels of Environmental Performance

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NH DES) recognizes that the environmental, economic, and social health of the state and the nation, depend on improved environmental performance. However, NH DES has the authority to force behavior up to the statutory and regulatory minimums, but the Agency has the opportunity and the need to encourage achievement of results beyond these minimums.

To reach for this goal, NH DES received a three-year grant from EPA's State Innovation Grant program that includes several key tasks. NH DES will work with colleges to include environmental issues in business curricula, provide training in environmental management for private and public sector organizations, establish specific strategies for small businesses, and search for a way to use the "bully pulpit of the state government to recognize, and perhaps reward, within a legal framework, organizations that perform above and beyond the minimums.
