Small Business Environmental Assistance Program (SBEAP) — Resources: Calculators, Due Dates and Checklists 


Air Emissions Calculators

SBEAP has developed a series of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to help small businesses determine if they need an air emissions permit and/or track compliance with their current air emissions permit. Directions on how to use the spreadsheets are located in the PDF files. Some spreadsheets will require manipulation to best represent the materials used at each facility.

Self-Audit Checklists

Conducting a self-audit is a great way to ensure that your business is meeting environmental requirements. Self-audit checklists are available on the MPCA Environmental Audit Program (GreenStar Award) page. Dry cleaners may use their Compliance Calendar to complete a self-audit.
