American Transmission Co. recognized for environmental achievement

Michigan’s DEQ names ATC “Clean Corporate Citizen”

DE PERE, Wis. – The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has recognized American Transmission Co.’s environmental stewardship activities with one of its highest honors, the Clean Corporate Citizen designation.

Known as “C3,” it is a voluntary program that recognizes environmental stewardship at Michigan facilities. Candidates demonstrate facility-specific environmental management systems, active pollution prevention initiatives, and a consistent record of compliance with state and federal environmental requirements.

“Achieving and maintaining superior environmental performance has always been a top priority for our company,” explained Greg Levesque, ATC’s environmental manager. “We are committed to environmental leadership throughout our business, as evidenced by our participation in the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Green Tier Program. It is only natural that we would adhere to the same standards with our work in Michigan.”
