Concord, NH November 24, 2009 - Hitachi Cable America (HCA) continues to be a leader in green initiatives.
On November 23, New Hampshire's Department of Environmental Services awarded Honorable Mention to HCA for its submission for the Governor's Award for Pollution Prevention. Governor John Lynch presented the plaque to HCA representatives.
Since 1996, NH's DES has been providing recognition to companies who have chosen to limit and or decrease the impact that their company has on the environment. These companies have initiated programs that address environmental concerns such as reducing waste, recycling, energy reduction and alternative energy. HCA currently has 21 green initiatives that it has undertaken in an effort to further limit the environmental impact of its manufacturing facility. Over the last few years, HCA has significantly reduced the amount of waste it generates while simultaneously increasing recycling efforts. HCA also dramatically reduced the amount of methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) that it generates. This was accomplished by transitioning to water based products.
The winner of the Governors Award for Pollution Prevention for 2009 was Southeastern Container, Inc. of Hudson, NH. Also receiving honorable mention was BAE Systems of Nashua, NH.
