DuPont has announced that it will broaden the scope of its Safety Awards to include sustainability. The new 2013 DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards are now calling for applications, which should be submitted by 10 September 2012.
Koen van Neyghem, Managing Director, Europe, Middle East and Africa for DuPont Sustainable Soutlions said: “We took the decision to expand the awards in recognition of the clear need for improved sustainability in business today. At DuPont, we believe there is a global need to improve sustainability. We have shown that it is not a hindrance, but a key ingredient to growth, especially in times of economic insecurity.” Van Neyghem continued: “These awards help to advocate sustainability and reward companies for innovative, effective programmes or projects that have succeeded in making their workplaces cleaner and greener.”
The awards now welcome entries from all companies or organisations that can demonstrate significant achievements in safety or sustainability in one or more of the following categories: safety performance improvement; innovative approach to safety; visible management commitment to safety; sustainable corporate footprint; cultural evolution in safety or sustainability; stakeholder engagement for sustainability.
The jury will announce a shortlist of three finalists per category in December 2012, based on criteria including design and innovation; scope; results, replicability and risk. The winner for each category will be presented with a trophy and a certificate at the award ceremony.
The winners, selected by an independent panel of judges, will be announced at the award ceremony in Dubai in March 2013. Further details, as well as the application form, can be obtained by contacting the independent organising committee at email@example.com.
