GSA Evergreen Award
The U.S. General Services Administration presented the 2005 GSA Evergreen Awards to Kyocera Mita America, Inc. (Technologies & Electronics).
The Evergreen Award was designed to recognize the efforts of GSA’s corporate partners in recycling, identify environmentally preferable products and services, waste reduction, and to serve as an example for other firms to follow.
The Evergreen Award was established by GSA’s National Furniture Center in support of Executive Order 13101 dated September 14, 1998, entitled “Greening the Government through Waste Prevention, Recycling and Federal Acquisition.” This policy requires that executive agencies incorporate waste prevention and recycling into their daily operations and work to expand markets for recovered materials through greater federal government use of recycled products.
