I recently blogged about why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is ending the Climate Leaders program for the Green Tie, the official blog of NAEM, the premier association for EHS Management.

Green Power! On Monday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented us with a 2009 Green Power Leadership Award for our commitment and contribution to helping advance the development of the nation’s voluntary green power market.
