This most recent recognition validates the positive trajectory of our ongoing work,” said Gabe Wing, Director of Safety and Sustainability. “One goal of Earthright, our corporate sustainability strategy, is to become even more community driven, and we’ve made great strides to engage our suppliers in this effort and to reduce our collective environmental footprint.”
