NERC is Now Accepting Applications for its Environmental Sustainability Leadership Award

NERC offers a unique recognition program to individuals and companies in its 11-state region that demonstrate an impact on an environmentally sustainable economy in furtherance of the NERC mission. Awards are given to the public and private sector, with a special category reserved for NERC Advisory Members.

To be eligible, an organization or individual must be located within one or more of NERC’s 11-member states.  Applications are due August 13.

“Every year we receive dozens of outstanding applications and are always impressed by the range and depth of what is accomplished in our region, “ Lynn Rubinstein, NERC Executive Director commented. “It is obvious that the commitment to an economically sustainable economy thrives in the Northeast and we are proud to be able to recognize the leaders in these efforts,” she added.

The award presentations will be made at NERC's Virtual Fall Conference, October 12 - 13. For more information about the Conference, visit the NERC website.
