Wood Library is committed to reducing our environmental footprint and promoting environmental stewardship at all levels of our organization.
Our goal is to minimize Wood Library’s impact and maximize the ability of future generations to live, work, and play in our shared natural environment, with equal access to clean air, clean water, and natural resources.
We will strive to minimize pollution and waste, conserve energy and water, protect habitat, support renewable energy resources, buy environmentally friendly products, and encourage environmentally preferable transportation. These efforts will extend to contractor and supplier relationships, and we will encourage contractors and suppliers serving or otherwise acting on behalf of Wood Library to meet our standards of environmental performance. We will offer ample opportunities for community members to learn about environmental stewardship and will seek out opportunities to partner with other organizations that share this commitment.Employee understanding and involvement are essential to the implementation of this policy. All employees will receive a copy of this policy and be informed about Wood Library’s efforts to improve our environmental stewardship. Everyone associated with Wood Library (staff, trustees, volunteers) will be involved in supporting our goals.
