Los Alamos garners six pollution prevention awards from New Mexico

LOS ALAMOS, N.M., September 26, 2002 -- Five units of Los Alamos National Laboratory and the lab's primary subcontract company have won the New Mexico Green Zia Environmental Excellence Awards for their efforts in pollution prevention and environmental excellence.

Los Alamos' Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) and Nonproliferation and International Security (NIS) Facility Management (FMU-75) won Commitment Level Recognition. The Risk Reduction and Environmental Stewardship (RRES) (formerly the Environmental Science and Waste Technology Division), Engineering, Science, and Applications (ESA) and Dynamic Experimentation (DX) divisions and Johnson Control Northern New Mexico won Achievement Level Recognition.

The voluntary Green Zia Environmental Excellence Program helps New Mexico businesses achieve environmental excellence by establishing environmental management systems based on pollution prevention. It is sponsored by the New Mexico Environment Department and administered by the New Mexico Environmental Alliance, a partnership of state, local and federal agencies, academia, private industry and environmental advocacy groups.

Commitment Level Recognition is given to organizations that have made strong commitments to pollution prevention and are establishing systematic pollution prevention programs.

Achievement Level Recognition is given to organizations that have turned their pollution prevention programs into prevention-based environmental management systems and can demonstrate measurable results.

The winners were recognized by Gov. Gary Johnson and State Environment Department Secretary John D'Antonio Jr.at a ceremony at the Santa Fe Hilton Hotel.

"The Green Zia Program enabled E Division to create a conscious focus on environmental excellence and also provided a good external review of how effectively we accomplished that, "said Brian Thompson of RRES Division.
