“I am proud to present these awards to organizations that have displayed outstanding leadership. While they represent a variety of facility types and sizes, all of the winners have several key factors in common that contributed to their success: each organization has an organization-wide commitment to environmental performance, sets annual environmental goals and measures their results. Their commitment is outstanding and, as we can see, they are really getting results.”
