The State of Wisconsin Recognizes North Shore – Green Tier Celebration

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recognizes North Shore Environmental Construction, Inc. (NSEC) for participating in the Green Tier Program.  A formal initiation event was held on November 12th at Bar Louie’s at the Bayshore Town Center in Glendale, Wisconsin to honor NSEC’s participation in this program and their current achievements.

The Green Tier Program recognizes companies that aim for environmental excellence.  Since 1989, NSEC has been working to protect the environment by providing clients with services in hazardous and non-hazardous materials management, transportation and disposal, emergency spill response, industrial and environmental services and remediation.  As a Green Tier Participant 1, NSEC will continue their efforts to surpass environmental regulatory standards and build on its Environmental Management System.  NSEC will focus on waste reductions, recycling options and energy use reductions.

North Shore’s latest environmental improvements include:

  • using enhanced high efficiency lighting and installing light sensors
  • implementing an Environmental Management System, which will provide baseline data to compare with future results
  • developing mercury chemical decontamination technology
  • implementing beneficial reuse practices
  • recycling treated wastewater
  • converting waste to energy at designated facilities
  • reducing carbon emissions with the addition of flex fuel vehicles
  • purchasing stone, sawdust and other supplies locally

A big thank you to Chloe Soik, Assistant Project Manager, for enrolling NSEC in the Green Tier Program.  She completed the application and submitted our plan to the WDNR for approval.  She has been diligently working on NSEC’s waste and energy use reductions and recycling program.  Chloe coordinated our initiation event with the WDNR, our clients, friends and family.
