An environmental policy statement (EPS) is a proactive way to communicate about a farm’s environmental stewardship ethic. At first glance, this might seem like a “feel good” exercise with very little practical value. However, experience has shown that farmers and ranchers are quick to identify ways they can use the policy statement for their operation. The exercise stimulates conversations that many farm operators have not previously initiated with family or employees. In addition to providing a starting point for environmental planning, it is an excellent activity to include in business management programs and curriculum.
