Please join the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s Office of Pollution Prevention for a FREE workshop on developing and strengthening your environmental programs. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 24, 8:30-5 and join businesses from around the region for a day of learning and networking.
DEQ’s Office of Pollution Prevention manages the Virginia Environmental Excellence Program (VEEP). VEEP is a voluntary program to encourage and assist facilities and organizations to go above and beyond compliance and be environmental stewards. VEEP participants are recognized for their accomplishments and are eligible for permit fee discounts, a dedicated point of contact at DEQ, and opportunities for networking and mentoring.
At the Valley Region VEEP Workshop you'll hear about creating environmental programs that encourage employee buy-in, developing your EMS, DEQ regulatory requirements, and how to find pollution prevention opportunities. The workshop will be held at the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton, Virginia.
In addition to updates from DEQ staff you will hear from speakers with the Virginia Port Authority, Virginia Clean Cities, and the Community Climate Collaborative. What past VEEP Workshop attendees have said:
“Regulatory speakers were very informative.”
“Great ideas from other participants.”
“It was an excellent workshop.”
This is a free event open to everyone, but you must be registered in advance.
