œWe are very proud to award EMA the designation of e-Stewards Enterprise and applaud their leadership in electronic asset stewardship Mike Enberg, e-Stewards Enterprise Director.
Founding Board Member Raymond Stone, CEO of RaveReady says "I think that every company wants to do "good things" but it isn't always easy to recognize the small things we can do to make a big difference. EMA was able to help me identify several ways to reduce waste and usage within my business. This of course benefits our environment and is in alignment with EMA's mission.
