Promoting and protecting South Carolina's environmental resources requires consistent community involvement and ongoing communication among all of our stakeholders.
We also use collaborative, problem-solving strategies and partnerships to ensure citizens in overburdened communities are involved in our decision-making processes. We emphasize the importance of developing and strengthening relationships with environmental justice stakeholders.
We use and encourage a combination of approaches to provide meaningful opportunities for engagement including:
- outreach and education,
- public notices and public comments,
- availability sessions,
- meetings and hearings,
- feedback surveys,
- listening sessions,
- citizen advisory boards, and
- advisory committees.
