  • Replacing all incandescent light bulbs used for task lighting with fluorescent or LED light bulbs.
  • Educating employees about energy and water efficiency practices.
  • Practicing business/commercial recycling.
  • Developing and implementing an environmental policy.
  • Developing at least five additional sustainable operations strategies in each of the following program categories: energy use, transportation, water use, waste reduction and recycling, and hazardous materials, when applicable.
