Buffalo Grove, Illinois, United States: Profile Products is one of 12 global companies to have earned the ‘SEAL Environmental Initiative Award’, recognising organisations who have embarked upon environmental and sustainability initiatives and a commitment to sustainable business practices.
The awards are given out annually by SEAL (Sustainability, Environmental Achievement & Leadership) Awards.
Profile earned the award for its commitment to eco-friendly solutions for the environment, educational outreach and sustainable production methods.
This includes Profile’s industry-leading initiative to use recycled-content packaging across all product lines. Profile is the first in the industry to adopt environmentally friendly packaging for all of its products.
The award also recognises Profile’s innovative environmental scorecard initiative that outlines the work the company has done to create a more sustainable environment, including restoring more than 1.5 million acres of land. Through this scorecard, Profile set new benchmarks that hold the company accountable for its environmental goals and pushes the industry to move toward more sustainable practices.
“This award embodies the hard work and commitment every Profile employee has made to protect the environment and enhance the communities we serve,” said Jim Tanner, CEO and President of Profile, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “We are honoured to share this award with other outstanding companies and humbled that the SEAL Awards see value in our mission.”
The awards featured two categories –
SEAL Environmental Initiative Award: This award honours specific environmental and sustainability initiatives. Other award winners included JD.com, Equinix and Shire. Initiative entry applications were reviewed by a judging panel composed of sustainability executives from leading companies, like AMD, Carnival, Micron and Sodexo.
SEAL Organisational Impact Award: This award recognises overall corporate sustainability performance and represents the 50 most sustainable companies globally, including adidas, Apple, Best Buy, BMW, IBM, Microsoft, Nike, Patagonia and Sony.
“Our sustainability awards celebrate organisations that embrace their ethical responsibility to drive change,” said Matt Harney, Founder of the SEAL Awards. “Many business sustainability initiatives are overlooked within their own organisations – let alone lauded by the media or public – even though they often make real positive impacts for our planet. We are excited to honour their sustainability leadership.”
One hundred per cent of the award entry fees raised will be contributed to the 2019 SEAL Environmental Research Grant initiative.
