AkzoNobel honors companies using sustainability practices
July 31, 2012— AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings Americas recognized three companies engaged in and advancing sustainability practices.
AkzoNobel gave the 2012 FIT Sustainability Award to two repairers and a car rental company during a special program last month at the San Antonio Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
The businesses recognized are Oka’s Auto Body in Waipahu, Hawaii; Keenan Auto Body in Clifton Heights, Pa.; and Enterprise-Rent-A-Car in St. Louis, Mo.
“Corporate sustainability is, at its core, a long-term commitment to implementing business practices that meet today’s needs for profitability, personnel development and environmental stewardship; yet at the same time keeps a focused eye on the impact these decisions will have on the future,” said Mike Shesterkin, director of sustainability and new business innovations for AkzoNobel. “The 2012 winners of the FIT Sustainability Award have all taken different approaches to achieving this goal, but collectively share in the passion and pursuit of global sustainability, with leadership that has paved the way for others to follow.”
