Indiana currently boasts many examples of proactive environmental initiatives at various government facilities throughout the state. Complementing, and in many instances, leading these initiatives is the state's Greening the Government program. Greening the Government promotes a comprehensive environmental plan for Indiana's several hundred State facilities.

The goals of Indiana's Greening the Government initiatives are to improve the environmental performance of State of Indiana operations, and in many cases, make those operations more efficient and cost effective. The Greening the Government Plan includes five major program categories:

  • Employee Education
  • Source Reduction and Recycling Collection
  • Environmentally Preferable Purchasing
  • Pollution Prevention and Energy Efficiency, and
  • Employee transportation.

Indiana's Greening the Government Program is managed within the Department of Administration and is given ongoing guidance from the Department of Environmental Management, the Greening the Government Taskforce, and the Governor's office.
