The Office of Sustainable Practices advances a culture of sustainability across the department, state government and with our various partners through an action-based approach. Conserving resources and using energy wisely makes sense on a basic level: it saves money and positively impacts our health and environment today and for future generations. Department-wide efforts promoting energy efficiency, sustainable business practices and voluntary environmental initiatives will be monitored and improved continuously. The Office of Sustainable Practices will work with local governments, businesses, and communities on real world issues, including energy efficiency, energy conservation and cost saving ideas that promote reuse and recycling while producing less pollution and lighter resource consumption.
TDEC’s Office of Sustainable Practices is organized to produce results in these key program areas
The office has the ability to engage innovative, talented people working in all parts of TDEC – in the Bureau of Environment, Administration, Parks and Conservation – to leverage opportunities for greater sustainability wherever it exists. No good idea or thoughtful suggestion should be off limits if it can deliver results. It will take a collective effort to continue protecting the environment while meeting our communities' needs. Working together, we can promote sustainable practices in all walks life to make a better Tennessee for all of us.
