Environmental Excellence Awards 2005

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description NYS DEC is working on the 2nd Annual Environmental Excellence Awards (EEA) program. The EEA recognizes applicants for going beyond compliance and on their development of projects that exemplify innovation, sustainability, or partnerships. The Agency received applications from 25 entities in early July 2005. The Internal Review Committee (IRC) reviewed the applications and determined that all of the applications met EEA eligibility criteria. The applications were then screened by designated DEC programs, along with regional, legal, and environmental enforcement staff, to determine the applications' technical acceptability and the applicants' compliance record. This review included a determination as to whether or not an application demonstrated tangible environmental benefits beyond regulatory requirements, a check on the compliance history of the applicant or facility, and the status of any enforcement action taken or being considered against the applicant or facility. Reviewers were also encouraged to share their perspective regarding the project, the application, or the applicant. The IRC analyzed all technical and compliance comments, and 22 applications were packaged in binders and sent to the External Review Committee (ERC) on August 19, 2005 for their consideration. The ERC will convene workgroup evaluation sessions during the first several weeks of September 2005. The awards ceremony will be held later in the year.
