It’s a significant achievement to be added to the list of 24-Karat Gold Award Winners. Just one Environmental Leadership Program Gold Leader per year rises to the top by taking exceptional steps to ensure a cleaner, more sustainable environment for future generations of Coloradans.

The Environmental Leadership Program at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is a statewide environmental recognition and reward program that offers benefits and incentives to members that voluntarily go beyond compliance with state and federal regulations and are committed to continual environmental improvement. It is open to all Colorado businesses, industries, offices, educational institutions, municipalities, government agencies, communities, nonprofits and other organizations. Organizations work through three levels of membership: Bronze Achiever, Silver Partner and Gold Leader. 24-Karat Gold Award winners are selected by Gold Leader peers. ... more
