The Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation received a Silver Excellence in Economic Development Award for its 2015 project in the category of Sustainable & Green Development for communities with populations greater than 500,000 from the International Economic Development Council.
The honor was presented at an awards ceremony on Oct. 6, during the 2015 IEDC Annual Conference.
The organizations were recognized for The Wisconsin Profitable Sustainability Initiative (PSI), which demonstrates the range of economic, social and environmental benefits that can be realized by small and mid-size manufacturers through the implementation of sustainable business practices.
Established in February 2010 and now funded by a grant from the WEDC, the program establishes Wisconsin as a leader in sustainable manufacturing as measured by the high percentage of manufacturers in the state that utilize sustainable practices and/or manufacture sustainable products.
