The Truth About Green Zia

Shortly after the debate posted below, a judge and examiner for the Green Zia Award weighed in:

"I have been an examiner for Green Zia since its inception, and Intel was the most controversial award, as they had very little physical proof of P2 (pollution prevention). Their application was written very well. I have examined LANL, General Electric, McKinley Paper, and many other applications, but Intel was the most controversial of all because they had few physical examples of excellent P2 efforts."

"Green Zia was supposed to be about assisting companies in becoming more sustainable, and instead the types of corporations which apply do it to clean up their reputations rather than seriously commit to green changes. The Excellence level should be reserved only to obvious green companies who are providing absolute sustainable ways to conduct business. It was a mistake to grant Excellence to Intel. It takes away from the worthy Excellence award of the Durango-McKinley Paper Company. I believe most people in NM were disgusted when the NM Environment Department gave Intel an Excellence."

Awarding the Green Zia to Intel is like awarding Hitler the humanitarian of the year award. What a sham.
