“Sustainability is about balancing the environmental, economic, and social needs of the District of Columbia today as well as the needs of the next generation, and the one after that.”
- Mayor Bowser

In today’s growing sustainability-conscious marketplace, the greening of business operations is even more crucial. At the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE), we encourage all District businesses to incorporate sound environmental policies and practices in their daily operations. Whether it is by helping businesses employ ways to conserve energy and recycle, or to issue permits, or monitor compliancy of local and federal environmental regulations, the DOEE serves as a partner and an advisor to local companies committed to meeting and exceeding their environmental goals.

Regulations and Compliance

The first step towards sustainability starts with environmental compliance.  Not all regulations and requirements will apply to your business or organization.
