Can the NJDEP help me become an Environmental Steward?

The NJDEP's primary responsibility is ensuring compliance with environmental rules and regulations. NJDEP inspectors will provide some general guidance and information during planned site visits, but will not be able to respond to open requests for assistance. Inspectors will not be directly involved in helping a site develop its environmental stewardship project or activity. The NJDEP Environmental Stewardship web site at provides external web site links that will be helpful to businesses interested in becoming an Environmental Steward. Also, as the program develops, the NJDEP hopes to establish a network of Environmental Stewardship mentors who will offer assistance to other businesses.
