    MILWAUKEE - In recognition of the fact that clean air is not just the responsibility of government, three Wisconsin businesses were honored recently by the Wisconsin Partners for Clean Air (WPCA) for their voluntary efforts to improve air quality.

    The awards were presented during the 2010 Clean Air Extravaganza at the Children’s Health Education Center on Thursday, May 20. The Clean Air Extravaganza is an event to celebrate the accomplishments of Wisconsin businesses and organizations that are improving air quality by reducing emissions from their facilities and fleets, improving energy efficiency, providing employee commuter options, and developing ways to educate the public about air quality issues. The WPCA is a coalition of over 300 businesses, community organizations, schools and government agencies committed to improving air quality through voluntary action.

    Southeast Regional Director Gloria L. McCutcheon presented the WPCA Recognition Awards to the following:

    * Orion Energy Systems for their leadership in innovation and energy conservation.
    * Riteway Bus Service for their drive for continuous improvement to reduce emissions throughout their operations.
    * Fiore Companies was presented with the Commuter Champion Award for their extensive offering of commuter benefits to the employees of their Network 222 building in Madison.
