USAG-DETROIT ARSENAL, Mich. - The U.S. Army Garrison - Detroit Arsenal has been selected as a Clean Corporate Citizen by the State of Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment for the fourth consecutive year.
To maintain this status is not only an honor this makes the USAG-DTA stand out from other organizations throughout Michigan.
The Clean Corporate Citizen program allows regulated establishments that have demonstrated environmental stewardship and a strong environmental ethic through their operations in Michigan to be recognized. The C3 program is built on the concept that these Michigan facilities can be relied upon to carry out their environmental protection responsibilities without rigorous oversight, and should enjoy greater permitting flexibility than those that have not demonstrated that level of environmental awareness.
Clean Corporate Citizens who voluntarily participate in this program will receive public recognition and are entitled to certain regulatory benefits, including expedited permits.
Approximately 109 industries throughout Michigan have been recognized and given the honor of Clean Corporate Citizen. The USAG-DTA qualifications included having a valid Environmental Management System, an active Pollution Prevention Program, and participation with local community outreach programs.
The status of Clean Corporate Citizen has made the Environmental program at Detroit Aresnal stronger and continues to build a solid relationship with the State of Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
