Green Tier Legislative reports

We are pleased to share the Sustainability & Business Support's 2020 report highlighting the DNR's free, non-regulatory services that support Wisconsin's business community in enhancing sustainable environmental practices that support the state's economic engine while ensuring a healthy and robust environment.

The 2020 report highlights the tools available to Wisconsin's business community no matter where they are on their environmental path.

You will learn about our non-regulatory Small Business Environmental Assistance staff and how they help businesses start-up and expand. You will hear from business experts on how Enviro-Check helps customers evaluate their operations to manage compliance risks; and read testimonials from environmental leaders participating in the Green Tier program to go beyond compliance.

Check out the report – you will:

  • Hear a Small Business Environmental Council member's insight on the benefits of DNR's business services;
  • Read how a prominent construction company uses their Green Tier experience to go beyond compliance;
  • Learn why a foundry is taking advantage of a newly developed air permit to help them reduce their environmental impacts more efficiently;
  • Try out the customizable map that shows participant locations and political boundaries; and
  • Discover new initiatives created that provide flexible, streamlined tools for participants who have committed to reducing their environmental footprint.
