The DEP’s Environmental Stewardship Program encourages businesses and other institutions to better protect the environment by providing public acknowledgement showcasing their achievements as an incentive for others to follow.

The DEP also recognized Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory in Princeton, Colgate Palmolive Co. in Piscataway, Bristol Myers Squibb Co. in Hopewell, LP Thebault Division of Earthcolor in Parsippany-Troy Hills, Mannington Mills Inc. in Mannington, Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. in Kenilworth, Windham Worldwide in Parsippany, the Duke Farms Foundation in Hillsborough, Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. in Summit, and Raritan Valley Community College in North Branch.

These facilities demonstrated strong overall environmental policies are committed to community outreach, participate in federal stewardship programs and carry out programs to enhance the environment.

The DEP has verified more than 760 businesses and other entities as implementing various environmental stewardship practices.

They include manufacturers, chemical companies, pharmaceutical companies, government agencies, utilities authorities, medical facilities and educational institutions.

DEP inspectors ask facility operators a series of questions about their operations.

The inspectors are asking facility operators whether they maintain a comprehensive written environmental policy, whether they operate under an Environmental Management System designed to reduce environmental impacts, and whether they publish an annual environmental report.
