The Environmental Management & Operations (EM&O) Section provides environmental regulatory compliance and environmental stewardship services for city-owned facilities and activities. Compliance services include the Environmental Training Program, which provides mission critical training and instruction to City staff on environmental protection policies and practices, and the Active Tanks Program, which provides leadership, oversight, and critical inspection, testing, repair and maintenance services to City agencies that operate oil and fuel tanks. The Section also provides leadership to Denver’s ISO 14001 Certified Environmental Management System, which is a management tool used to implement the City’s environmental goals and commitments and verify that they’re being achieved. Denver is the only North American city to have all its agencies and departments certified to the ISO 14001 Standard. Through these programs we ensure that the city complies with all relevant environmental regulations and minimizes negative impacts on the environment while contributing to and supporting a healthy work environment.
