Northern Engraving Joins Tier 2 of the Green Tier Program

Northern Engraving has achieved a Tier 2 level of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Green Tier Program. 

Sparta Building PhotoOn July 7, 2023, a ceremony was held in Sparta, WI to celebrate the achievement of becoming a Tier 2 participant in the Green Tier Program.  Green Tier empowers leading organizations to align their environmental management system with business objectives and strategy for continual improvement in their environmental performance.  

This status took many years of hard work and dedication to obtain.  Back in 2002, NEC became one of the six participants in the DNR’s Environmental Cooperation Pilot Program, the precursor to Green Tier, that evaluated innovative environmental regulatory methods.  After a successful Cooperative Agreement, involving an innovative and flexible air pollution control permit, the DNR and NEC agreed on a contract under Tier 2 of Green Tier.  Tier 2 participants agree to pursue superior environmental performance and maintain an environmental management system.

"NEC has been actively manufacturing for over 100 years. In that time, there has been a major push to become more environmentally conscious. Working with customers and local entities, including the Wisconsin DNR, NEC is on the right path to continue with our commitment to the environment," said Mark Peterson II, the Environmental, Health, and Safety Manager for NEC. "Finally transitioning into Tier 2 of the Green Tier program is something that NEC is proud of and should stand as a testament to our never-ending pursuit to a better and cleaner future."
