Governor Honors Lyman-Morse as an Environmental Leader

Governor John Baldacci and Maine DEP Commissioner David Littell honored Lyman-Morse for participating in the department’s voluntary Environmental Leaders of Maine: Smart Growth through Smart Production program on Friday, April 24th in Augusta.  Lyman-Morse was recognized for achieving a 36% reduction in energy usage since 2004.  This reduction is equivalent reducing carbon dioxide emissions by  292 metric tons!

Justin Wiegleb, JB Turner, Mackenzie Cronin and Ron Defoe were present to accept the award from the governor.  The Environmental Leaders program provides a blueprint for businesses to follow to exceed environmental compliance standards and to become mentors in the business community.

“You are proving that Maine can become more energy independent, can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other harmful air pollutants, and reduce the use of toxic chemicals — at the same time we grow green jobs and the Maine economy,” Baldacci said in a news release. “From energy efficiency and onshore wind to offshore tidal, wind and wave, these are exciting times that will lead to a cleaner and more secure energy future in Maine.”

Several other companies were also recognized for their participation in the program -- Poland Spring Bottling, NorDx Laboratory of Scarborough and Wright Ryan Construction of Portland. Both Lyman-Morse and Bath Iron Works signed an agreement April 24 to renew their participation in the program.
