“We are honored to be recognized with this prestigious national award," said, Kevin Zacharyasz, director of Energy & Sustainability Program, OHA. "However, the true honor goes to all our members working on projects to advance energy and sustainability initiatives for their organization, community and patients. We would not be here without them, and we would not be able to continue our sustained success without their support.”
“As we accelerate historic efforts to address climate change, public-private partnerships will be essential to realizing the scale of our ambition,” said EPA Administrator Michael S.
