The city's interdepartmental Green Team oversees the development of the Environmental Management System, starting first at the Coppell Service Center. In 2010, the City of Coppell Service Center was recognized by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality as a GOLD Member of Clean Texas. To receive this recognition, the Environmental Management System at the Coppell Service Center was third-party certified, then verified by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. TCEQ presented the Clean Texas Gold Member at a Coppell City Council meeting. Click here to see video of the presentation.
This is the first certified Environmental Management System developed by a municipality in the state of Texas.
