ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

The Clark Group is supporting EPA with the development and delivery of trainings and webinars for the ENERGY STAR® program for commercial and industrial sectors. This work includes creating training and communication materials to help engage and inform users of the ENERGY STAR program and the Portfolio Manager energy savings tracker tool. As part of this work, The Clark Group’s team has supported the administration of the ENERGY STAR training program, assisted in website and graphics development, and created 508 compliant communications materials.

NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION

The Clark Group developed training materials to help NOAA-wide offices comply with laws regulating the management of hazardous materials, including requirements for storage, transport and disposal. This effort was part of a larger contract in which The Clark Group drafted a series of environmental compliance manuals about hazardous materials and electronic waste. 

Red stone Arsenal

The Clark Group was part of a team that developed and presented a training course entitled “Practical Implementation of NEPA and Associated Consultation in Support of Army Installations”, which was presented to the US Army Garrison–Redstone Arsenal, Department of Public Works (DPW). The course included an overview and discussion of the legal, policy and procedural requirements relative to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The origin and history of NEPA was presented to an audience of primarily facilities engineers, but also containing the Garrison's environmental staff. Course material was tailored to actual Redstone Arsenal issues and incorporated the Army’s perspective. To assure that participants left the course with the knowledge and materials to assist them with future NEPA requirements, a mix of instructors with extensive Department of Defense and Department of Army experience was used. Course instruction also included experts on the ESA and Section 7 consultations, as well as consultations under Section 106 of the NHPA, and how such consultations interface with NEPA requirements.
