You asked for ways to measure success.  Some measurements our office
receives from industry and non-business winners includes seeing the award
plaques in the front entry of the winners' buildings, banners/signs on the
exterir of some winners' buildings, using some facilities as tour sites to
demonstrate pollution prevention succsses, some winning businessses "mentor"
other businesses in pollution prevention, willingness to be highlighted in
success stories, and other.
