Join the Pennsylvania Environmental Council on April 19 at the Hilton Harrisburg for the 2016 PEC Harrisburg Dinner as we recognize the Governor’s Awards for Environmental Excellence.
Awarded each year by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), these awards highlight the best in environmental innovation and expertise throughout the Commonwealth. Each year the Governor’s Awards for Environmental Excellence are the highest statewide honor bestowed to businesses and organizations involved in a cross-section of environmental initiatives from cleaning up watersheds, saving energy, eliminating pollution, reducing waste, and more.
The awards program is open to all Pennsylvania businesses, farms, government agencies, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and individuals who have created or participated in the development of a project that promotes environmental stewardship and economic development in the state.
Projects will be selected based on eight criteria: protection, partnership, public service, environmental education and outreach, pollution prevention, economic impact, innovative technology, and climate change.
