C/S' ongoing dedication to sustainable efforts was recognized further with a special accolade
DENVER, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Construction Specialties (C/S), a leading manufacturer of high-performing commercial architectural products, is pleased to announce its fourth consecutive Champion for Change Award from Practice Greenhealth. This achievement carries additional significance, as C/S is one of two companies to receive the inaugural Champion for Change with Distinction Award, a new accolade created to recognize businesses that "break the mold" in their approach to sustainability in healthcare. The company received the award at yesterday's 2012 Environmental Excellence Awards ceremony as part of this year's CleanMed conference. This recognition coincides with the recent announcement that C/S has expanded its product transparency efforts to include an on-product ingredient label for their core wall protection product, Acrovyn® 4000.
The Champion for Change Award, presented by Practice Greenhealth annually, recognizes businesses that have demonstrated a commitment to sustainability both within their organization and in helping their clients and customers to pursue environmentally responsible practices. This year's introduction of the Champion for Change with Distinction Award – also awarded to architect firm Perkins + Will - further commends companies who have been innovative in the area of chemical responsibility, tracking and addressing toxic or untested chemicals that are part of their supply chain or products, or that contribute to the products and equipment used in their organizational operations.
