Program Goal

The goal of the Economic Development and Green Environment (EDGE) program is to incentivize manufacturers who capitalize on their commitment to sustainability.

Program Description

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) works with you to provide environmental certainty, promote business growth, and support local economic development, while leveraging the unique benefits of redeveloping brownfields.

Participants who meet the EDGE criteria earn a 10-year extension of air pollution control requirements as a reward for putting brownfields back to work. Participants may also be eligible for an exclusive air permit, streamlined requirements, alternative compliance methods, and more.
