Commitment to Sustainability and Environmental Compliance

Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) believes that our organization has a financial, social and environmental responsibility to the community to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for Dallas County and its citizens.

We demonstrate our commitment to sustainability in these ways:

  • We comply with local, state and federal environmental laws and regulations.
  • We actively promote and participate in conservation and pollution prevention activities.
  • We continuously integrate process improvements in our operations.
  • We purchase environmentally responsible goods and services.

Compliance Is a Shared Responsibility

The environmental performance of DCCCD’s contractors, vendors and consultants directly affects our ability to protect the environment and comply with environmental laws and regulations.

If selected as a contractor, vendor or consultant, you also will be responsible for knowing and complying with the environmental protection laws, ordinances and regulations which apply to the work you do for DCCCD.

We Prefer to Purchase Environmentally Preferable Products

Environmentally preferable products and services have a lesser or reduced negative effect on human health and the environment when compared to competing products or services that serve the same purpose.
