JACKSON — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) is now accepting applications for enHance, the agency’s environmental stewardship program, through November 1.
enHance is a voluntary stewardship program that recognizes committed environmental leaders who accomplish goals beyond their standard regulatory requirements. Participating organizations make a commitment to address and achieve ongoing environmental improvements.
“enHance has successfully brought together and recognized members that go above and beyond what is required by environmental laws and regulations and are good stewards of our state’s natural resources. These members have decreased their wastes, reduced their environmental impacts, and improved the quality of life in their communities. We hope that additional members will be added for the class of 2022 who share the same vision and leadership as our current members,” said Chris Wells, MDEQ Executive Director.
enHance currently has 32 members from across the state (see list below). The program is open to manufacturers, local governments, institutions and other eligible organizations who are interested in the program. Interested applicants can choose from three tiers: Leader, Steward, or Associate.
