Tennessee Department Of Environment And Conservation Conducting Small Business Survey

Thursday, February 28, 2013

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s small business survey will be issued throughout the state to identify obstacles small businesses face in their attempts to comply with environmental regulations.  Responses will be used to make changes at TDEC that can help small businesses protect the environment and comply with the environmental laws that regulate them. 

The survey is available beginning Thursday, through the close of business on Friday, March 15, and can be found at the following links: http://www.tn.gov/environment/survey/ and https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GMRQ5BG

The survey contains 10 questions, taking approximately 15 minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous, unless an individual business decides to identify itself at the end of the survey. 

For the purpose of this survey, a small business is defined as any business -- regardless of staffing or budget -- that does not have a full-time staff member solely dedicated to environmental compliance. 

It is requested that only businesses who fit this definition complete the survey. 

If there are any questions, respondents can contact Meredith Benton at 615 687-7074 or Meredith.S.Benton@tn.gov.
