WI Partners for Clean Air  Award

DNR and Wisconsin Partners for Clean Air recognizes three voluntary efforts; 2005 awards go to Culver's, UW-Oshkosh, and Wisconsin Interfaith Climate & Energy Campaign.


MADISON -Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton joined the Department of Natural Resources and the Wisconsin Partners for Clean Air at the annual Clean Air Extravaganza today to celebrate the accomplishments of Wisconsin businesses and organizations that have taken voluntary actions to improve air quality in the state. The event took place at We Energies headquarters in downtown Milwaukee and was attended by CEOs and other representatives of Wisconsin Partners for Clean Air organizations, and other federal, state and local officials.

Through Governor Doyles Grow Wisconsin and Conserve Wisconsin initiatives, we are working hard to improve our natural resources while enhancing our economy at the same time, said Lt. Gov. Lawton. This balancing act is a difficult task, but we are fortunate to have organizations like the Wisconsin Partners for Clean Air, composed of over 300 businesses and organizations, who are dedicated to working toward that same goal.
