Evaluating Green Tier: A Practical Guide for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

This report presents the authors suggested criteria for the evaluation of the Green Tier program, which encourages partnerships between the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) and state businesses to improve environmental performance. The evaluation should be conducted before the law authorizing Green Tier sunsets in 2009. The authors recommend that the WDNR: create a joint legislative and WDNR working group to oversee the evaluation; undertake a multi-method approach for collecting data; provide an open evaluation process that makes results readily available; and continue to increase awareness of the Green Tier program.
