ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the move of the Palm Bay Utilities Department (PBUD) to create a culture that promotes environmental awareness and stewardship throughout its daily operations in Palm Bay, Florida. The PBUD has incorporated green initiatives by implementing its environmental management system (EMS) called GreenWay. The PBUD has 118 employees who provide service to more than 106,000 citizens. It also operates a wastewater treatment plant and a water reclamation plant. It is noted that the PBUD became the first utility in the state to have water and wastewater treatment facilities registered under the ISO 14001:2004 standard.
