Clean Utah is a voluntary program that encourages and rewards Utah businesses and other permit holders for going beyond compliance to preserve and protect Utah's environment. Clean Utah supports the goal of environmental excellence through the integration of continuous improvement into business management and operations typically in the form of a prevention-based Environmental Management System (EMS). Any Utah business, large or small, may participate in one of two tracks, either Silver (EMS required) or Bronze (EMS not required).
Clean Utah and the Utah Pollution Prevention Association recognized Salt Lake City today for its new Public Safety Building, the first building of its kind in the nation to achieve a net zero pollution rating. Salt Lake City received the 2013 Outstanding Award in Pollution Prevention at the annual Clean Utah Luncheon attended by business and community leaders at the forefront in reducing pollution in Utah. The award recognizes the innovative technologies and energy efficient strategies employed in the design of the new Public Safety Building, including the use of roof canopy solar panels, an off-site solar farm, strategic use of natural light and florescent or LED low energy lights, a solar hot water heating system and energy monitoring systems.
