14th DuPont Safety & Sustainability Awards
The winners of the 14th DuPont Safety & Sustainability Awards
Around the world, organizations have had to adapt to a new normal, meeting the demands of a challenging operating environment and uncertain market conditions with innovative solutions. They have developed novel ways of working to keep people safe, come up with inventive solutions to make operations more efficient and taken a pro-active stance on protecting the environment.
Organized by DuPont Sustainable Solutions, the 14th DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards recognize these achievements with awards in three categories. We are pleased to announce the winners of this edition of the awards:
Global Winner: Engro Fertilizers Limited, Pakistan
In order to celebrate the achievements of the winners of the DuPont Safety & Sustainability Awards, DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) will host several digital ceremonies that will consist of two panel discussions featuring top executives of the winning companies.
History of the Awards
This initiative began as the DuPont Safety Award in 2002 with the purpose of stimulating individual or collective initiatives for safety enhancement and accident prevention in the EMEA region and evolved into its current format – a global initiative dedicated to improving safety, reducing footprint and driving efficiency within industrial operations – in 2015. This change was made in recognition of the increasingly interconnected nature of innovative operational improvement programs. Over the years, the number and focus of categories were adjusted in order to reflect the latest thinking in safety, and later sustainability.
The DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards are brought to you by DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS), who have acted as stewards of these prestigious awards since their inception. According to Davide Vassallo, CEO of DSS, “the DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards are widely recognized by industrial companies as a benchmark for exceptional operational performance; for us, though, it is a means of galvanizing companies to pursue improvement projects, and celebrating the achievements of companies that have developed innovative approaches to protecting their people and improving their operations. Though DSS has evolved into an independent company, we remain committed to this mission. We are proud to host this initiative, now and in the future.”
