About Us - The PEGNL Environmental Committee
The Green Spot is a section of the PEGNL web site maintained by the Environment Committee to help promote environmentally conscious engineering and geoscience practice. The website provides information on environmental issues to the PEGNL membership through access to education, events, and new and relevant environmental regulations, planning and information. The Green Spot also provides information on the PEGNL Environmental Award. The award recognizes the application of sound environmental principles in engineering and geoscience execution in Newfoundland and Labrador.
