Environmental Assistance

The Environmental Assistance Office (EAO) helps Vermonters follow environmental regulations, reduce impacts to human health and the environment, and increase sustainability. We offer environmental compliance assistance to Vermont businesses and municipalities, provide recognition programs for green businesses in Vermont, and promote practices that reduce, eliminate, or prevent pollution at its source. EAO assists individuals, businesses, communities, state agencies, and others to identify effective and economical ways to reduce waste and pollution at the source.  

Our team is made up of Permit Specialists and Pollution Prevention and Sustainability Specialists. Want to make your business more sustainable? Starting a new construction project? Have questions about permitting? We are here to help!
