Environmental Leadership Program has new ways to showcase successes
By Shannon Barbare | Office of Communications
The Colorado Environmental Leadership Program has a fresh, new look, symbolizing its efforts to bring all kinds of business owners into the fold and creatively showcase their successes.
“Someday, I want your next-door neighbor to recognize our logo,” said program manager Lynette Myers, "and think to himself, ‘that’s an environmentally responsible company, and I want to use its products.’”
The Environmental Leadership Program, administered by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, is a voluntary program that recognizes organizations that go beyond compliance with environmental regulations and strive toward a goal of sustainability. Members work through three levels of partnership: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Including the new crop of 12 Gold Leaders, seven Silver Partners and 29 Bronze Achievers, program membership stands at 160 organizations, representing a variety of sectors from manufacturers to agriculture to schools and service providers. New and existing members will be recognized at the program's annual awards event Oct. 16 at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum.... more
