15 May Berry Architecture Receives Action HERO Award
On June 8th, 2011 Berry Architecture was one of five businesses and organizations that were presented an Action HERO Award.
Action HERO stands for Action for a Healthy Environment by Reducing Ozone. The Action HERO Challenge – Where Every Action Counts is a program that recognizes companies, businesses, organizations and individuals for the work they are doing to reduce air emissions that can lead to the formation of ground level ozone.
For their idle-free policies and operations, the Red Deer operations of ATCO Gas and Lafarge Canada Inc. received awards.
Bonavista Energy Corp. was selected for its work to reduce the emissions from its dehydration units, and Berry Architecture and Associates of Red Deer was awarded for its green approach to building designs and renovations.
Warren said by recognizing these groups and individuals and putting their names out there, they hope to educate others about things they can do that are air quality friendly.
While this year the recipients were businesses and municipalities, Warren hopes in the future the PAMZ will recognize the effort of individuals in the community.
The awards are handed out annually on Clean Air Day on June 8.
