V. Status of Department Initiatives
DENR prescribed seven core initiatives to be implemented throughout the
Department in 1999. The DENR department-wide goals include the following:
a carpool information system for staff commuting to work and for DENR
at least one waste assessment annually in Division buildings and/or
virgin paper purchases – increase proportion of recycled paper and paper
products purchased to 100%.
mandatory double-sided copying; where equipment makes this practice
difficult, implement phase-out of old, non-double-siding machines.
all new printers to print two sided.
that all office equipment (computers, copiers, scanners, fax machines)
purchased by DENR Divisions carry the EPA Energy Star certification.
all outside entities to submit paper forms, reports, permits, studies,
grant applications and other documents (e.g., municipalities, industries,
consultants) on printed double-sided on 30% post-consumer recycled paper
|These initiatives DENR Divisions are making
substantial efforts and progress toward the department-wide
goals. For a status report on each goal and recommendation
