Manufacturers (and CMTA members) receive environmental awards

 Nov. 29, 2011 Sacramento, CA -- In November, some innovative CMTA-member manufacturers made us proud by receiving awards for their environmental excellence.

At the Annual Statewide Environmental Summit in San Diego, four CMTA-member companies received awards:

    The Boeing Company
    Corporate Sustainability for their commitment to innovative environmental solutions, design of environmentally progressive products, research of cleaner fuels and enhancing the global air traffic system to reduce the carbon footprint of air travel by designing life cycle strategies through their operations, in service and end-of-service of their products.

    Johnson & Johnson
    Water Conservation for their significant water use reduction project at their La Jolla research campus.

    Del Monte Foods
    Air Emission Reduction for their focus on greenhouse gas reductions in their supply chain, manufacturing operations and distribution of their products.

    Sheffield Platers Inc.
    Waste Reduction & Recycling for their leadership in developing the industry standard Model Shop program, a holistic systems approach to reduce waste and emissions, improve worker safety, increase production rates and save on operating costs.

At the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Leadership Awards in San Francisco, the Department of Energy and the non-profit Center for Resource Solutions recognized organizations, programs and individuals that significantly advance the development of green power sources.

CMTA-member, Intel, was one of five companies to receive the Green Power Partner Award
    Intel has been the country’s biggest voluntary buyer of green power (as shown in the EPA’s latest rankings of its Green Power Partners), this year increasing its green power usage by 75 percent, from about 1.4 billion kWh to over 2.5 billion kWh, or about 90 percent of its U.S. electricity use. It also has 12 solar energy systems with more due to be completed this year.

We point out that the initiatives taken on by these manufacturing employers are voluntary. CMTA congratulates these five innovative companies for their tremendous efforts and success.
