Every two years the DNR reports to the Legislature on the accomplishments of Green Tier and the Compliance Audit Program. We are pleased to present our 2018 edition that celebrates the power of partnerships and the advantage to Wisconsin businesses and communities dedicated to improving their environmental performance.  

The 2018 Green Tier Biennial Report is available on our Green Tier web page at this link:   The interactive elements of the report work best when accessed from Internet Explorer. 

Report highlights include:

  • Four participants telling their own stories in a video series of how partnerships forged through Green Tier helped them meet shared goals of minimizing their environmental impacts and maximizing their bottom line.
  • A customizable map that shows participant locations.
  • Summary of new initiatives that provide flexible, streamlined tools for participants who have committed to reducing their environmental footprint.
