All BRAKEmax locations are “Gold” Certified by ADEQ

State statute (A.R.S.) §49-192 required the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to develop, implement and manage a Voluntary Environmental Stewardship Program (VESP) in 2012. This program identifies and rewards organizations that have a good history of compliance, and try to go above and beyond legal requirements. ADEQ strives to complement existing programs with new tools and strategies that not only protect people and the environment, but also recognize opportunities for reducing cost and encouraging technological innovation.

Organizations and businesses are invited to join VESP to work together on environmental quality issues and support ADEQ’s mission – to protect and enhance public health and the environment in Arizona. Membership incentives for joining VESP include: recognition, reduced inspection frequency, conferences, early notice of enforcement rulings, advance inspection notice, reduced reporting requirements, and coordination of multiple on-site inspections. Members will be invited to participate in discussions about incentives that might be added to the program.
