Madison – Today, the WMC Foundation recognized Inpro Corporation as one of nine recipients of this year’s Business Friend of the Environment Awards (BFOE).
“As a first in their industry, Inpro produced Environmental Product Declarations and Health Product Declarations to illustrate the environmental and health impacts of their products,” said Lucas Vebber, WMC Director of Environmental & Energy Policy. “They have continued a commitment to this transparency and have now made a six-figure investment in SoFi Sustainable Enterprise software and GaBi Product Sustainability and Environmental Accounting Software.”
Inpro invited their key suppliers to participate in a program called the Green Master’s Program (GMP) which is a business recognition program for companies in Wisconsin who are focused on sustainability. They continue to push this program to provide ripple sustainability not only within Inpro, but throughout the supply chain.
For the 27th year in a row, the WMC Foundation is recognizing companies with the 2016 Wisconsin Business Friend of the Environment Award. This year, a total of nine winners have been chosen for programs that demonstrate an innovative approach to environmental protection, or a level of effort beyond that which is required by regulatory compliance. These success stories reflect the continued commitment of Wisconsin industry to environmental protection.
This year’s award winners represent companies – both large and small – that have made significant improvements in the areas of sustainability, environmental stewardship and environmental innovation. Offering specific examples of successful programs, these winners demonstrate that sound environmental practices are good for Wisconsin’s environment and its economy. They serve as important examples for industry.
The 2016 Wisconsin Business Friend of the Environment award winners were selected from a pool of 32 nominees by an independent judging panel that includes an environmental attorney, as well as representatives from industry, the Department of Natural Resources, and the University of Wisconsin.
