Clean Corporate Citizen

The Clean Corporate Citizen (C3) program, established under Part 14, Clean Corporate Citizen, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended (NREPA), allows regulated establishments that have demonstrated environmental stewardship and a strong environmental ethic through their operations in Michigan to be recognized as Clean Corporate Citizens. The C3 program is built on the concept that these Michigan facilities can be relied upon to carry out their environmental protection responsibilities without rigorous oversight, and should enjoy greater permitting flexibility than those that have not demonstrated that level of environmental awareness. Clean Corporate Citizens who voluntarily participate in this program will receive public recognition and are entitled to certain regulatory benefits, including expedited permits.
