Environmental Policy

It is the policy of Zoo to conduct our operations in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner; to comply with environmental laws and regulations; to reduce our use of resources and generation of waste; to strive for continual improvement; and to lead by example.

When we use the term GREEN around the Zoo, it serves as a reminder of this policy.  Here is what we mean:

G...Growth in knowledge and continual improvement
R...Reduction in use of resources and waste
E...Environmentally responsible and sustainable operation
E...Example to others
N...Necessary compliance with environmental laws and regulations

We request anyone doing business with the Zoo honor this policy. Depending on the nature of your contract, product or service, you may be asked to follow a specific procedure that has been developed as part of our Environmental Management System certified as in compliance with the ISO 14001 standard.
