Ohio EPA has developed a new program to recognize organizations committed to environmental excellence at all levels; it is open to a wide variety of participants. The Encouraging Environmental Excellence (εз) program has a three-level approach that recognizes Ohio businesses and other organizations completing environmentally beneficial activities, and escalates to higher levels of recognition for those who exceed regulatory requirements or commit to future environmental stewardship efforts.

In this video, Agency expert Mike Kelley talks about the Encouraging Environmental Excellence program, designed to recognize and encourage Ohio businesses to become better stewards of the environment.
