In October 2004, Holland, Mich.-based Haworth, Inc., received the first-ever Sustained Achievement Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for exceeding waste reduction goals several years in a row.
"We have seen tremendous results with our environmental programs, and this is a great testament to our continuing efforts," said IAMC board member Dennis Boles, Haworth's director of global facilities. The 19,000-sq.-ft. (1,765-sq.-m.) Haworth Recycling Center has been in operation since 1992 and recovers over 30 types of materials from each of their Michigan manufacturing facilities.
In the fourth quarter 2004 newsletter from Arlington, Va.-based The Conservation Fund, Entergy Corp. was recognized for partnering with the Fund, the Big Thicket Association, the National Park Service and the Brown Foundation to acquire 680 acres (275 hectares) of forestland around the new visitor center at Big Thicket National Preserve in east Texas. James Hendricks, Baton Rouge-based director of economic development for Entergy, and Mike Maulden, director of external affairs for Entergy Arkansas, are both IAMC members.
That same issue of the newsletter noted that a Kodak American Greenway award honored Anheuser-Busch Cos. for watershed protection work near the Mississippi River, and along the Palmetto Trail and Savannah River Heritage Corridor in the Carolinas. IAMC board member Scott Reed is site development engineer for Anheuser-Busch Cos.
Fellow brewing member company Coors (Neil Jaquet, director of water resources and real estate for Coors, is an active member) announced it was selling 730 acres (295 hectares) on South Table Mountain in Colorado to the Trust for Public Land, which will then convey the land to an open space program for preservation and public use.
