2018 Environmental Excellence Awards

 The SGA Environmental Excellence Awards are given annually to recognize companies who have made significant impacts in protecting the environment by supporting environmental programs on the job or in the community. This award program also provides a forum for sharing of innovative environmental practices. Through utilization of innovative environmental practices, SGA member companies reduce waste, save money, and contribute to the industry’s environmental protection efforts, as well as benefit the health and welfare of the nation. Award recipients will be announced at the 2018 Environmental, Safety & Health and Training Conference  in Denver, Colorado, June 5-7. Winners may also be invited to present at the conference.
