Madison – Today, the WMC Foundation recognized Felss Rotaform LLC as one of nine recipients of this year’s Business Friend of the Environment Awards (BFOE).
Through the implementation of their oil recycling program, Felss Rotaform now uses an in-house recycling system to pump the dirty, used oil to reservoirs where it then goes to filtering, cleaning and reusing. The company was able to reduce their consumption by over 1,700 gallons thanks to this program.
“Felss Rotaform has a sound commitment to environmental management processes and through their initiatives, will continue to provide sustainability practices at a high level,” said Lucas Vebber, WMC Director of Environmental & Energy Policy.
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.
