Posted by Green Fun Store on 8/3/2010
The publication said that John Deere would receive the PGMS 2010 Gold Medal. The company is being honored for its commitment to organizations that support green initiatives. The award was created in 1926 and has been given away at an annual basis since 2004. It was first presented to horticulturist William Kleinheinz.
The PGMS will give the company the award during a dinner event on October 29 in Louisville, Kentucky. It will also honor Jeffrey Bourne, chief of the division of facilities and capital programs in Maryland's Montgomery County, with the E. Earl Wilson Award.
The Wilson award was created in 2004 and honors those who have provided exceptional service to both the PGMS and green projects as a whole.
Recently, John Deere announced it is making an engine available for its loading equipment that meets Environmental Protection Agency Interim Tier 4 emissions standards.
