AKRON, OH — The 2011 Sustainability Report of GOJO Industries Inc. has won accolades in a nationwide competition to recognize work in corporate social responsibility, according to a press release.
The GOJO Sustainability Report was honored on February 11 in the PR News CSR Awards competition, which attracted entrants from major U.S. corporations; GOJO was a nominee in the annual report category along with Hormel Foods Corporation, Office Depot Foundation, Wells Fargo & Company and Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, the release stated.
According to the release, GOJO established ambitious goals at its 2009 Sustainability Summit in the areas of social, environmental and economic sustainability.
The 2011 sustainability report outlined progress toward each of those goals, and told the story largely through the voices and experiences of GOJO employees, the release noted.
"We are fortunate to be in a business where we can make a real difference in social sustainability — saving lives and making life better for people through the types of products and programs we provide," said Marcella Kanfer Rolnick, GOJO vice chair.
"Through our Sustainability Report, we will continue to share our efforts to increase sustainability, green product innovation and reduce operational impacts through reduction in water use, waste and greenhouse gases," Rolnick added.
