“Every candidate that took part in the 2014 FTA Sustain- ability Excellence Awards should be recognized for individ- ual efforts to drive sustainable improvements,” Corcoran continued. “ We all know, not everyone who participates can receive the highest recognition for the efforts. The 2014 FTA award winners surpassed and outshined their competitors. The winners demonstrated incomparable and unparalleled programs, which could be applied to other industries wanting to drive sustainability.” FTA Sustainability Specialist Doreen Monteleone, coordi- nator of the awards program, agreed. “ T he number of entries this year is indicative of the importance of sustainability in a successful business model and it was nearly double last year’s ,” she said. Reflecting that new found significance, FTA modified its long running Environmental Excellence Awards Program, opting to expand its scope and adopt a more fitting nomer—Sustainability Excellence Awards. “Actions taken speak to the modern and more encompassing approach to sustainability, which includes environmental, health, safety and social accountability.” The following reports address exactly how Accredo Pack- aging and Avery Dennison exemplified that vision.
