Environmental & Sustainability Management System

In March 2013, the City of Dubuque began pursuing the Environmental & Sustainability Management System (ISO 14001) certification for the Municipal Services Center located at 925 Kerper Ct.  An Environmental & Sustainability Management System helps an organization develop a management system and standards to reduce negative impact of its actions on the environment, reduce cost of waste management, and increase savings in consumption of energy and materials.  It also helps an organization plan for continuity of operations.
