epaThere is still time to get your nominations in for the EPA Region 9 Environmental Awards for 2013! This year, nominations are not limited to a specific set of categories, so nominators can focus on the areas of
recognition they choose. A total of six to eight winners will be selected in the fall of 2013; nominations must be submitted by May 31, 2013.

 

This is a great opportunity to bring public attention to individuals and groups outside of EPA who are working to protect public health and the environment through innovative approaches, development and implementation of successful programs, and inspirational leadership. For more details or to submit a nomination, visit: EPA’s website.

Oscar-nominated director Filmmaker, Markus Imhoof, is getting international attention with his award winning film. “More Than Honey” covers the concern worldwide over declining bee health. Over the past 15 years, bee populations have mysteriously decreased at an alarming rate; a trend which could devastate the world food supply. Several contributing factors are suspected including parasites, disease, poor nutrition, exposure to pesticides, new viruses, and travel stress. Already Imhoof has received dozens of awards internationally.

Date/Time: Wednesday, June 5 – 11:00 AM PDT

The e-waste recovery infrastructure fostered by the CEW recycling program has resulted in approximately 1.2 billion pounds of obsolete TVs and monitors collected and dismantled in California over the past seven years. However, traditional markets for used CRT glass have diminished, creating challenges for recyclers looking for outlets for this material, even as an increasing amount of non-CRT video displays are joining the e-waste stream. CalRecycle and DTSC have been working on revised regulations to address this. Speakers Jeff Hunts from CalRecycle and Kevin Sanchez from DTSC will present an update on regulations and also provide a review of the e-waste claims and reporting processes.

Webinar: Colony Collapse Disorder and What’s Being Done to Protect our Pollinators

Date/Time: Tuesday, June 11 – 11:00 AM PDT

 

walterhaefekerThe decline of bees is getting global attention as we risk losing the ecosystem services these important pollinators provide.   On April 29, it was announced that the European Union will enforce the world’s first near continent-wide ban on widely used insecticides found to present an unacceptable risk to bees when properly applying the precautionary principle.

 

Walter Haefeker, a beekeeper in Bavaria serving as the President of the European Professional Bee Keepers Association helped lead the European beekeeping community’s efforts to support the EU Commission’s proposal to restrict the use of 3 neonicotinoids (clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiametoxam) for seed treatment, soil application (granulate) and foliar treatment on bee attractive plants and cereals.

 

During this Webinar, Walter will speak about critical issues facing bees today including diseases, pesticides, genetically modified crops and intensive agricultural practices.  He will share his experience working in coordination with environ- mental NGOs and family farmers organizations towards more bee-friendly friendly production of food, textiles and energy. He will discuss the successful “Fair Milk” campaign where Walter worked together with independent German dairy farmers to use bee friendly methods of feed production and land management.

 

He will also provide insights into a new cooperation with the German Biogas Producers organization to replace corn with flowering plants to produce renewable energy and honey while promoting biodiversity and regenerating soil. Finally, Walter will introduce a new international label developed and owned by the beekeeping community, which is designed to mobilize consumer demand for certified bee-friendly production.

The Western Sustainability and Pollution Prevention Network (WSPPN) announces its 2013 P2 Certificate Program where participants can receive non-accredited education hours for attending webinars, seminars and other pollution prevention trainings in Region 9 and throughout the nation.

The California Green Business Program (CAGBP) is a legislatively legitimized (AB 913, 2011) voluntary program offered by local government agencies that validates sustainable business activities, establishes a green marketplace, and tracks and promotes measurable economic and environmental outcomes from practices changes implemented by business participants.

In the program, local public agencies provide free or low cost expert technical assistance in air quality, solid waste, water supply, wastewater, storm water, hazardous waste and materials, and energy. Businesses who achieve a minimum level of compliance and sustainability practices become Certified Green Businesses and receive free marketing. The CAGBP is one of the few governmental environmental assistance programs that also result in economic development and beneficial governmental relations.

Launched in 1996, the program is now available in 21 California jurisdictions representing almost 40% of the state. More than 2,700 small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are certified statewide.  In 2012 those certified businesses achieved the following environmental protection and cost saving outcomes:

GHG Emissions Reduction

343,353,462 tons

Energy Saved

38,254,747 kWh

Solid Waste Diverted from Landfill

212,616,001 tons

Water Saved

30,362,771 gallons

Haz Waste Reduced

6,245 gallons

The programs work together as part of the statewide California Green Business Network. In 2012, in addition to local program funding challenges, the Network was informed that some critical state funding that supports the statewide database would not be available past the next fiscal year. This reduction in resources came at a time of unprecedented program expansion with agencies from Humboldt to Los Angeles beginning to launch programs and needing support. With the opportunity to really engage and support a robust statewide program, combined with resourcing challenges, the Network hosted a two-day “Charting the Path to Sustainability” retreat March 20-21, 2013 that led to a prioritized nine step action plan and working groups signed up to move those forward.

Eighteen of the twenty-one programs were represented, and the retreat attracted the participation of Cal EPA agencies (CalRecycle, DTCS, and CARB) as well as the Governors “Go Biz” program.  Small and medium certified businesses and the program auditing and certification partner agencies also participated for a total of almost 60 attendees. The retreat was designed and facilitated by nonprofit Institute of the Commons, who also helped with the formation of the California Product Stewardship Council as an extended statewide organization.

The group started with identifying key timeline activities and appreciations of the people and successes we’ve had along the way.  They then did scenario and trend identification for things that affect green businesses and the programs.  Individual work and breakout groups were then formed to identify and prioritize key areas for action to help the CAGBP move forward to sustainability in the face of all of those trends.  Participants were amazed that, at the end of a day and half retreat, we were leaving with action plans and commitments to further them!  The key areas where committees formed to take action are listed below,

The California Green Business Program:

  • Is driven by accurate and current performance data
  • Leverages technology
  • Practices collaborative governance
  • Attracts sustainable, reliable funding
  • Maintains high and consistent performance standards
  • Develops and implements effective marketing and branding for certified green businesses
  • Fosters sustainability education in schools
  • Promotes green workforce development
  • Continually expands our program impact and reach.

The transcriptions of the retreat with specific action plan steps are currently being approved by participants and, once complete, will be available to the public.  Please contact Jo Fleming at jo.fleming@envirocentives.com if you would like a copy or to find out how to participate in one of our action planning groups!

Fossil fuels have powered human growth and ingenuity for centuries. Now that we’re reaching the end of cheap and abundant oil and coal supplies, we’re in for an exciting ride. While there’s a real risk that we’ll fall off a cliff, there’s still time to control our transition to a post-carbon future.
