What began as an aspiration in late 2008 “to do everything thru the lens of sustainability” has now become a way of life at Clarke. Proof of that came in November 2016 when Clarke received its third Illinois Governor’s Sustainability Award.
The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) and the Office of the Governor honored 25 Illinois companies and organizations for their significant achievements in energy efficiency, waste reduction, pollution prevention and environmental programming. Since 1987, the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, a division of the Prairie Research Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has presented Governor’s Awards to organizations in Illinois that have demonstrated a commitment to environmental excellence through outstanding and innovative sustainability practices.
The honor received was based on Clarke’s progress against six key initiatives in 2015, including:
