KPPC Wins Two 2011 MVP2 Awards
Since 1999, the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable has sponsored the Most Valuable Pollution Prevention (MVP2) Awards program to recognize the successes of innovators in the areas of pollution prevention and sustainability.
On September 20, 2011, KPPC received two MVP2 awards at a ceremony in Washington, DC:
KPPC’s Technical Assistance Services were recognized in the Project/Programs Award category. Through its Environmental Sustainability Program and KEEPS – Kentucky Energy Efficiency Program for Schools, KPPC offers on-site assessments, training, technology demonstrations, assistance with identifying project implementation resources, recognition of achievements and web-based online resources to help participants develop a systems approach to implementing environmental sustainability efforts.
KPPC Executive Director Cam Metcalf received the P2 Champion Award, which celebrates an individual whose work has an outstanding impact on implementing pollution prevention. Metcalf is a national leader in pollution prevention and energy efficiency technical assistance, training and applied research. He joined KPPC in 1995, and currently serves on a number of advisory boards and boards of directors, including the Center for Renewable Energy Research and Environmental Stewardship, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s P2 Program Strategic Plan Workgroup and the University of Louisville Sustainability Council.
NPPR Executive Director Jeffrey Burke said, "I know of no one who is more deserving or worthy of the honor of being recognized as a P2 Champion than Cam Metcalf. He has been a leader in the P2 community for more than 30 years and continues to use his powerful voice to promote environmental sustainability."
The MVP2 Awards are presented annually during National Pollution Prevention Week. A panel of national P2 experts reviews the nominations and choses the award winners.
