Many of our clients at Rivanna represent progressive organizations that care about the environment. Their award programs honor those in the green world who are changing the way we do business and discovering ways to reduce our environmental footprint. Some of these projects are pretty cool! We’re delighted to use this space to spread the word about the interesting things recipients of our awards are doing.
This month, the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR) awarded six organizations with its annual MVP2 Project/Program Awards. The awards recognize innovative, effective pollution prevention (P2) projects all over the country. Kansas State University’s Pollution Prevention Institute received an award for its P2 summer intern program that connects top engineering and environmental science students with industry (and pays them, too – even better!). It’s a great way for students to get hands-on experience in an industrial setting, and firms get the benefit of a well-developed plan to help them reduce energy use, emissions, hazardous solid wastes, water contaminants, and employee risks. Plus, the interns often receive job offers from the host companies. It’s a win-win program that also benefits the environment – win-win-win!
We’re looking forward to spotlighting other inspiring award winners in the future, so check back often or contact us to share your story!
