New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's New York Environmental Leaders Program Open Enrollment Period
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) is accepting applications for the New York Environmental Leaders Program (NYEL). The open enrollment period began on September 1, 2011 and applications will be accepted until October 31, 2011.
NYEL, which is entering its fourth year of operation, provides recognition and incentives to New York State companies and organizations that can demonstrate the use of pollution prevention practices, beyond compliance performance, or sustainable business practices as a result of their participation in NYEL. Detailed information about NYEL can be found on the NYS DEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/939.html.
Those accepted as members in NYEL are considered a priority for relevant NYS DEC assistance. For instance, NYS DEC can help facilitate assistance through the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (http://www.nysp2i.rit.edu/) and help members garner assistance through other relevant state programs. In addition, NYEL members have access to a NYEL contact within NYS DEC. The NYEL contact will be available to assist with communication between the member and NYS DEC, and to help members garner assistance in their environmental goals from the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute. NYEL members are also able to use the NYEL logo to promote their green practices and receive recognition from NYS DEC for their outstanding achievements.
NYEL provides flexibility to prospective applicants by offering two membership tiers, the entry tier and the leadership tier. In addition, NYEL is open to wide array of organizations including businesses, especially manufacturers, as well as organizations such as schools, hospitals, and local governments. For more information on which tier best fits your organization, please visit the NYS DEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/939.html.
If your organization is interested in becoming a NYEL member during this open enrollment period, a NYEL application form for the tier your facility intends to apply for must be completed and returned by October 31, 2011. Interactive versions of the NYEL Entry Tier Application and NYEL Leadership Tier Application forms are available for download on the NYS DEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/939.html. Also, if you have any colleagues that you think may be interested in NYEL, please forward them this information.
