MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) – the combined state chamber and manufacturers’ association – announced nine companies as recipients of the Wisconsin Business Friend of the Environment Award. For over three decades, WMC has presented this award to companies who have demonstrated environmental leadership through sustainability, stewardship and innovation.
“Wisconsin businesses lead the charge in protecting the environment, showing commitment to both their communities and the future of our state,” said WMC Director of Environmental & Energy Policy Craig Summerfield. “This year’s recipients of the Business Friend of the Environment Awards truly go above and beyond what they are required to protect the environment, and WMC is proud to highlight their important efforts.”
Awards are presented in three categories, according to company size. Businesses must demonstrate they have made significant improvements in the areas of sustainability, environmental stewardship or environmental innovation. The goal of this awards program is to demonstrate to state policymakers and the public that businesses are leading in sound environmental practices.
“Congratulations to this year’s winners of the Business Friend of the Environment Awards,” added Summerfield. “We’re grateful for this opportunity to show that Wisconsin employers are committed to environmental protection, not because of burdensome regulation, but because it’s good for the future.”
