With strengthened environmental performance and improved operational efficiency, FEMA can focus more effectively on its central mission of helping our citizens, with the added benefit of achieving this mission through sustainable operations.”
GAITHERSBURG, Md (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
PRIZIM Inc. (PRIZIM) was recently selected by the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency(FEMA) to provide strategic sustainability, energy, and environmental management program development support. FEMA’s mission is to aid citizens and first responders in the face of emergencies and disasters, and the agency has undertaken a further task to perform its duties in an even more efficient manner that saves taxpayers money and manages environmental risk. PRIZIM will help FEMA in accomplishing this task.
PRIZIM will offer its signature high-quality technical support and value-added consultation for which it is widely known. As a new subsidiary of Hitachi Consulting, PRIZIM now has access to a wider array of change management, business process and IT resources and a deeper capacity to identify tactical cost saving and risk management solutions than ever before.
PRIZIM’s scope in this project includes policy analysis, implementation and integration strategies, field operation program support, data management and information delivery systems, environmental and sustainability reporting, environmental auditing and compliance assistance, and communications and public awareness activities. PRIZIM Principal Julia Philpott is the project lead, offering her expertise in energy efficiency, risk management, and sustainability reporting at the facility and enterprise levels.
“We’re excited to begin supporting FEMA,” says PRIZIM Senior Vice President and Senior Sustainability Executive Frank Priznar. “FEMA serves an important role in the U.S., offering assistance to communities during the vulnerable time in the aftermath of a disaster. With strengthened environmental performance and improved operational efficiency, FEMA can focus more effectively on its central mission of helping our citizens, with the added benefit of achieving this mission through sustainable operations.”
