Kentucky DEP Joins Stewardship Action Council

The Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) recently became a member of the Stewardship Action Council (SAC).  The Stewardship Action Council is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving environmental performance. Members include representatives from the academic, state government, nongovernmental, investment and industrial and services sectors. SAC was formed in 2011 after the termination of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Environmental Performance Track Program.

DEP membership in SAC will enhance its implementation of the state’s environmental leadership program, KY EXCEL. KY EXCEL staff will be able to partner with and learn from other SAC members in its efforts to encourage environmentally positive business practices.
