NBC honors 21 companies for regulatory excellence

Posted 5/25/12

PROVIDENCE – At its 18th annual Environmental Merit Awards ceremony, the Narragansett Bay Commission recognized 21 local companies that achieved perfect regulatory compliance and outstanding pollution prevention throughout the year.

NBC honored Providence Community Health Centers Inc. with a stormwater management award for its efforts to reduce and manage the flow of stormwater from their facilities to the sewers and ultimately into the rivers and Narragansett Bay.

The University of Rhode Island Center for Pollution Prevention received a special award from the environmental advocacy agency for educating and preparing students to find sustainable and cost effective solutions to environmental problems.

“To date more than 500 companies, many of which are located within the NBC’s service district, have eliminated millions of pounds of waste, reduced environmental liability and health risks, and have increased business profitability due to the work of the Center,” said an NBC release.

R.I. Department of Environmental Management Director Janet Coit delivered the keynote address at the awards ceremony on May 24.

“Hats off to the 19 companies being honored today for their stellar environmental compliance records,” said Coit. “When businesses care about the impact they have on the environment, they are making a long-term investment in Rhode Island —and that means a better place to live, work, and play for us all.”
