Brooklyn Daily


Give it up for National Grid, the company that never stops giving and making our borough green and cozy. Kicking off Earth Day celebrations National Grid presented a $225,000 grant to the Brooklyn Navy Yard which will support the Sustainability Story exhibit currently housed in Bldg. 92. The exhibit preserves the legacy of the Navy Yard and is also a showcase for a wide variety of sustainability initiatives and green manufacturing business. Ken Daly, president of National Grid New York told Standing O, “The company and its employees are delighted to partner with the Brooklyn Navy Yard to promote energy efficiency and inspire local job growth.” “We appreciate National Grid’s generous grant of $225,000 to support the Sustainability Story exhibit, which seeks to educate students and adults about green-building practices and growth of green manufacturing at the Brooklyn Navy Yard,” said Andrew Kimball, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation.

Standing O and Mother Nature are very delighted that both companies are committed to employing, educating, reusing, sustaining and keeping Brooklyn beautiful and green.
