Continual improvement. Is it an optimistic notion? Newest buzz words? Or is it a new wave in management function? I know I have blog’d about it before, but after reading an article on the City of Dallas and their commitment to environmental management I couldn’t resist sharing what I had read. The City of Dallas is a fantastic example of what an organization can accomplish when it sets out to go beyond compliance.
Several years ago, the City of Dallas selected Intelex’s Environmental Management System as the tool to support their goal towards an environmentally healthy city. This is by no means a small commitment. They are following through on their promise to not only comply with laws and regulations, but to “go beyond what’s minimally necessary and do the best work possible on behalf of the environment, the citizens and resources of Dallas.”
