Annual Environmental Leadership Award - Applications Being Accepted

Advancing and supporting a sustainable economy and environment is especially critical this year.  In recognition, NERC seeks nominees for its annual Environmental Sustainability Leadership.

This year, NERC will honor an organization or individual that has demonstrated activities that resulted in expanded markets for post-consumer feedstock of materials collected from residential recycling programs in one or more of the NERC member-states. The end-market itself, does not need to be in one of the NERC states, but preference may be given if it is. Applications are due August 12.

“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. “This year, the decision was made to highlight end-market development.”

The award will be presentations November 2, during the NERC Conference in Rocky Hill, Connecticut. For more information about the Conference, visit the NERC website.
