Gryphon developed a Pollution Prevention (P2) plan for the New Mexico Army National Guard (NMARNG). The plan outlined the concepts and practices necessary to reduce waste generation and the NMARNG’s overall environmental impact. The plan provided methods for tracking progress, researching new P2 technologies, identifying new opportunities, and tracking cost savings. It also documented accomplished P2 initiatives to date in key program areas. A suggested P2 opportunity was the development of a Green Procurement plan, which Gryphon was contracted to complete as a follow-up project.
