Amadeus Consulting, a custom software development company, announced today that the company's CIO, John Basso, has been nominated for the 2010 Sustainability Champion Award to be presented at the Sustainability Opportunities Summit in March. The Sustainability Champion Award recognizes individuals and teams who have gone above and beyond required duties in the creation and implementation of a program or initiative that has made measurable contribution to the environment, the economy and society.
John was nominated because of his dedication to reducing Amadeus Consulting's carbon footprint, and teaching others the simple and tangible ways they can as well. John has implemented numerous sustainability programs to help reduce waste at Amadeus Consulting. One of the programs that John has championed is the two-fold trash diversion program. The first part of the diversion includes co-mingled containers, cardboard and compost. The second part of the diversion includes a Center for Hard to Recycle Materials, or CHaRM. Built as a mobile unit of the Eco-Cycle center, and completely of sustainable materials, it allows Amadeus Consulting to recycle plastic bags, computers, ink cartridges, batteries and Styrofoam. John has also been instrumental in the development of the BLAST! training program. The BLAST! program, or Business Leaders in Action for Sustainability today, is a training program for businesses to take real action and designate their companies as stewards of the environment. Training includes the how-to's on trash diversion, composting, and building augmentation. It also includes continual incorporation of new techniques on ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. blastnetwork.org/.
