The Virginia Environmental Excellence Program (VEEP) is a voluntary program that recognizes facilities that have demonstrated a commitment to enhance environmental performance. The program encourages innovations in environmental protection. VEEP consists of two separate tracks: A Sustainability Partners track and a multi-level Environmental Management System (EMS) track. This manual contains implementation guidance for both tracks. Procedures for the submission, review and approval or rejection of all applications are outlined in the manual. The manual includes guidelines for environmental reporting on environmental programs by members. Procedures for program support, maintenance and required documentation are also outlined in the manual. The manual has been updated to reflect changes in contacts and annual reporting procedures.

In order to reduce agriculture non-point source pollution of Virginia’s waters, the Virginia General Assembly in its 1999 session amended Chapter 22 of the Code of Virginia by adding § 62.1-229.1 which expanded the activities of the Virginia Water Facilities Revolving Fund to the Commonwealth’s agricultural producers for implementation of specific agricultural best management practices. This Code section was amended in 2019 to add a grant funding option, to expand eligible applicants, and to expand eligible practices to include riparian buffers and renovation, improvement or equipping of facilities. The purpose of this update to the guidelines is to implement several changes identified by staff as necessary to improve implementation of the program.
