The New York City Brownfield Partnership is pleased to announce that Dr. Daniel A. Walsh, Director of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Environmental Remediation, will be presented with the 2013 American Bar Association Award for Excellence in Environment, Energy and Resources Stewardship.
The Partnership, and three of its Directors, David Freeman, Roberta Gordon, and Larry Schnapf, nominated Dr. Walsh in recognition of his leadership and significant contributions to brownfield redevelopment in New York City. Past recipients of the Award include a founder and early President of the Environmental Law Institute, one of the nation’s leading environmental think tanks; the President of CERES, a prominent coalition of corporations, investors and public interest groups that promotes sustainable investment; and the Director of Environmental Support for the company responsible for arranging for remediation of hundreds of former General Motors Corp. properties nationwide.
This prestigious award will be presented at the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources Fall Conference on Friday, October 11, 2013 at the Hilton Baltimore. A number of Partnership Directors and members are planning to attend the awards ceremony and hope that others will consider joining us to honor Dan on October 11.
