02-24-2021 02:39 PM

Attached you will find the general position statements approved by the Board in December 2004, and the public policies that came from that and were approved in September 2005 (after a public comment period that had ended in August 2005). After the issuance of the September policies, there was another public comment period on more specific sustainability statements. The Board approved them in December 2005, and they were added into the new policies document.
