GREENSBORO, N.C. — The North Carolina Association of Launderers & Cleaners (NCALC) has been named winner of the Fourth Annual Trade Association Environmental Leadership Award by the National Steering Committee of the Small Business Ombudsman/Small Business Environmental Assistance Programs of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The EPA award honors “exemplary performance and leadership by a trade association to enhance members’ compliance with applicable environmental regulations and to encourage stewardship of the environment.” Chris Edwards, NCALC’s vice president of governmental affairs, accepted the award at an EPA conference held in St. Paul, Minn., in June.
The EPA Small Business Environmental Assistance Program cited NCALC for its cooperation, support and promotion of the program in North Carolina through its newsletters and a variety of educational initiatives.
EPA also lauded NCALC for its leadership in creating the North Carolina Dry-Cleaning Solvent Cleanup Act and ongoing efforts to ensure its implementation, as well as the association’s participation in the state Department of Environment & Natural Resources (DENR) study group examining solvent alternatives.
