The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) was recognized as one of two finalists at the New Mexico Sustainable Business Summit held in Albuquerque in August 2013.
The second annual summit, presented by Albuquerque Business First and the New Mexico Green Chamber of Commerce (NMGCC), is a business expo and awards luncheon to recognize organizations that have “green” practices integral to the way they operate.
WIPP was selected as an honoree in the category of sustainable workplace. “I’m very proud of the WIPP team,” said Carlsbad Field Office (CBFO) Manager Joe Franco. “It’s essential to protect human health and the environment, and we encourage the WIPP Team to look for ways to improve our processes.”
