The Environmental Management program handles a broad spectrum of environmental compliance matters for Tufts University. Our goals are to support Tufts mission by developing, managing and coordinating quality environmental services for the university, minimizing environmental risks and costs, as well as promoting environmental compliance and performance. We aspire to provide these services efficiently, reliably, and professionally.
Environmental management at Tufts is a collaborative effort between many members of the Tufts community. Many environmental compliance requirements are implemented by Tufts ten academic schools as well as Facilities Services, who often consult with the Environmental Management program.
Our services include: compliance assistance and permitting, program management planning and implementation, audit and management reviews, managing inspections of regulated infrastructure as well as training. Additionally, we maintain relationships with regulatory agencies on behalf of the University to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations intended to protect human health and the environment. While we endeavor to handle matters internally to the best extent possible, we regularly engage and supervise outside contractors to provide additional expertise.
The Environmental Management program views environmental compliance at Tufts as a baseline that Tufts Environmental Policy builds upon.
