Florida Pollution Prevention Roundtable announces 2012 awards

Staff report

The Florida Pollution Prevention Roundtable is accepting applications for their 2012 statewide Pollution Prevention Award. The annual award recognizes public- and private-sector organizations that have demonstrated leadership and initiative in reducing pollution at the source and greening their operations.

Awards are given for both small and large organizations. Past winners have demonstrated substantial reductions in energy and water use, as well as waste reduction.

The award application is available at www.flppr.net. The application period ends June 1, 2012.

The mission of the organization is to establish a forum for identifying, coordinating and promoting voluntary pollution prevention activities and providing resources throughout the state of Florida.

Membership in the roundtable is open to any Florida resident with an interest in promoting pollution prevention and includes representatives from environmental agencies, private industry, academic institutions and citizen groups with a mission or interest in promoting P2 activities in their organizations or communities.

Awards will be presented Sept. 21, 2012, at the 2012 Pollution Prevention Conference in Melbourne.
