Newport Energy & Environment Commission - Sailors for the Sea

Newport Energy & Environment Commission

 April 18, 2013  | By: Oceana

We have partnered with the Newport Energy & Environment Commission (NEEC) – to help support their efforts in making Newport, RI a sustainable event destination. The NEEC provides a comprehensive checklist and plan for many kinds of events (music festivals, conferences etc.) to be run in a sustainable manner. This week, the commission has posted their resources online! Our program director, Annie Brett worked with the commission on this plan – which also recommends that all events at sea (quite a few in the ocean state!) use the Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas Program.

Additionally, on April 30 the Rhode Island Senate will pass a resolution commending the commission for their hard work! Click here to learn more about the commission – and view their plans.
