System-wide sustainability workgroup

…the Governor’s Office recently established their Office of Enterprise Sustainability to assist state agencies (including Minnesota State) in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and water usage, increase energy efficiency and recycling, and better coordinate sustainability efforts across state government. In addition, the State recently created a new structure to support and achieve the state’s sustainability goals, including those outlined in Executive Orders 11-12 and 11-13. The new structure will likely result in new sustainability and energy-related reporting requirements for state agencies, including Minnesota State.
