ADEQ recognizes 12 new members of its Voluntary Environmental Stewardship Program
In addition to recognition from the ADEQ, membership in VESP offers organizations several incentives, including fewer inspections and coordinated on-site inspections for multiple purposes, reduced reporting requirements, early notice of enforcement rulings and conference participation. Membership is available in four categories: businesses, municipalities, non-profits and schools.
“This important program highlights the positive changes Arizona businesses and municipalities are making in their operating procedures to protect the environment,” ADEQ Ombudsman Ian Bingham said. “We encourage others to join VESP to proactively and cost-effectively apply innovative technologies, tools and strategies and to showcase their activities statewide.”
More information on the VESP is available on the ADEQ’s website.
