Environment and Conservation Sponsoring Pollution Prevention Workshop
Nashville, Tenn. – The Department of Environment and Conservation’s Office of Environmental Assistance will sponsor a pollution prevention workshop at Dell, Inc. in Nashville on October 17, 2007 from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. The workshop is geared to help anyone from individuals to industry learn more about the Pollution Prevention Partnership (TP3) program for environmental protection.
The Tennessee Pollution Prevention Partnership is an environmental recognition program operated by the Department of Environment and Conservation to reward top environmental performance. TP3 members are households, schools, government agencies, organizations, businesses and industries that lead the way to environmental excellence by managing environmental responsibilities, reducing and preventing pollution and being good environmental citizens.
The Middle Tennessee workshop is the last of three scheduled this fall across the state to provide guidance on how to advance through the TP3 levels as well as the Environmental Protection Agency’s Performance Track program. In addition to guidance, the workshops provide mentoring, outreach and networking opportunities.
Dell, Inc. is hosting the Middle Tennessee workshop. There is no fee for attending, but registration is required by October 1, 2007 to assure adequate materials are available. To register, call Charles Jobe at 615-687-7074 or email Charles.Jobe@state.tn.us.
