Y-12 was recently recognized by DOE for innovation and excellence in sustainability, pollution prevention and environmental sustainability stewardship efforts.

Y-12 received two Sustainability Awards at a ceremony during the 2012 GreenGov Symposium in Washington, D.C. An independent panel chose Y-12 from approximately 137 nominations for two of this year’s 20 awards. 

Y-12’s awards were Reaching Beyond - Y-12 Sustainability Outreach, which included collaborative outreach activities within the Y-12 Complex, in the local community and at the national level, and Y-12 Targeted Excess Materials Program Pursues Sustainable Disposition Paths, which addresses hard-to-disposition excess legacy materials, critical and strategic materials and equipment.
