The Office of Sustainable Practices promotes social, environmental and economic sustainability for Tennesseans. Our programs reduce pollution and save money through renewable energy incentives, recycling and repurposing programs, sustainable building design, environmental leadership initiatives, and responsible purchasing. We work with state agencies, local governments, businesses and communities to support a more sustainable future.
Our action-based programs include:
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.
