2015 Performance Improvement Awards Program

2015 Performance Improvement Awards Program

ChemStewards® is proud to announce the winners for the 2015 Performance Improvement Awards Program. Nearly 40 SOCMA member facilities will receive an award for their outstanding commitment to continuous improvement in environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) practices.

Applications are judged based on 5 core areas: Stakeholder Communications, Product Stewardship, EHS&S in Planning and Operations, Employee Training and Engagement, and Resource Management and Waste Minimization – specifically taking into account practices and principles that demonstrate continuous improvement above and beyond the requirements of the ChemStewards® program. The Sustainability award acknowledges a facility that displays exemplary commitment to sustainability and green chemistry.

2015 Performance Improvement Awards winners will be honored this year at SOCMA’s 94th Annual Dinner in New York City, December 7, 2015. Click here to view photos, event recap and list of attendees from last year’s annual dinner and award ceremony.
