DES Releases New Making Your Business Greener Workbook

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services is proud to introduce theMaking Your Business Greener Workbook. This easy-to-use set of checklists and explanations can help businesses become better overall environmental performers.

More and more businesses are "Going Green", or want to, in order to save costs, protect the environment and maintain a competitive place in the market. But many businesses, especially small businesses, may not have the necessary knowledge, the time for training or the resources to hire experts to help them become a "green" company. DES’s new Making Your Business Greener Workbook is designed for those businesses. It is a set of checklists with brief explanatory texts that a business manager can use to help guide his or her business into the new paradigms of waste minimization, energy reduction and sustainability.

The checklists range from simple but comprehensive surveys, to detailed examinations of different aspects of a business, to "graduate level" surveys of Environmental Management Systems and sustainability. A company can pick and choose which they want to address now, and move on to others later.

DES is issuing the Workbook as part of its efforts to encourage better environmental performance in New Hampshire and to ensure a better quality of all life for everyone in the state. The Workbook is available online at under the topic Greening Your Business. For further information, please call DES’s Planning, Prevention and Assistance Unit at 603-271-1749.
