P2 Week 2001 - New York

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description NYS DEC's Central Office celebrated P2 Week in the lobby and hearing room at the new building located at 625 Broadway in downtown Albany. At the awards ceremony held mid-week, Mary Werner, P2 Unit Director, announced that Governor Pataki signed the 2001 Governor's Proclamation for P2 Week and that the commissioners of the Northeast States and the administrators of EPA Regions I and II signed the Joint Resolution. DEC Commissioner Erin Crotty and Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings provided welcoming remarks at the ceremony. The NYS Governor's Awards for P2 were postponed due to the September 11th events and have not yet been re-scheduled.

The NYS Strategic Goals Program awarded its first Certificate of Achievement to C. H. Thompson, Co. Inc of Binghamton. A bronze level award was issued to them for compliance with all environmental regulations and achieving a reduction goal of 59 percent.

The NYS DEC Pollution Prevention Unit set up a Green Buildings display identifying the elements of DEC's new building that qualify as Green Building disign. The Divisions of Air, Solid and Hazardous Materials, and Water also set up displays and staffed them throughout the P2 Week activities.

Many people attended the children's P2 awards ceremony, where the winners received certificates and prizes. The winning posters are proudly on display throughout the new building and on the DEC website. The children and their families enjoyed a sight seeing cruise on the Hudson River with Pollution Prevention Unit staff at the close of the day's activities.
