Last Tuesday on September 29th, Ebsco’s President, Cheryl Dooley and myself attended the 2015 Dream it Do It Manufacturing Connection Reception.
Ebsco Spring their Manufacturing Sustainability award.
I was so proud of the Ebsco Team.
Sustainability basically means we will conserve resources, using just what we need to leave plentiful resources for generations to come. It is the cornerstone of Ebsco’s Environmental Management Program. When we initiated our Green Team and embarked on creating an environmental policy I was skeptical of the enthusiasm and acceptance, Was I wrong! The team embraced it and ran with it. Everyone did their part and the ideas began to flood in. That’s the Ebsco way.
Environmental awareness leading to an Environmental policy. is important for all companies. To start, and most important it is just the right thing to do. We utilize resources to make our goods and it is our responsibility to look after the environment that serves us and belongs to everyone. Secondly it is becoming good business. Bigger companies are requiring suppliers to have environmental policies and I foresee a day they will require ISO 14001 certification. We are running out of reasons not to do anything.
Again I was very proud to accept this on the part of the Ebsco Team. Below is a picture of all of the 2015 awards recipients.
If you’ll excuse me, I need to go put some boxes in the re-cycle container.
