The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) presented its first ever Better Practices, Better Planet 2020Sustainability Awards at the association’s annual meeting on Friday, Nov. 9 in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Designed to recognize exemplary sustainability programs and initiatives, the awards are to be given based on the merit of entries received across multiple categories. This year, five companies were chosen to receive awards.
“These awards symbolize our commitment to sustainability and the strides our members have made to constantly improve our business practices,” said AF&PA President and CEO Donna Harman. “We have long been sustainability leaders, and now AF&PA is recognizing the very best of our members’ leadership and innovation across the spectrum of what constitutes sustainability.
“Thanks to our members’ efforts, we will continue to make progress toward achieving the industry’s sustainability goals, setting the bar for other industries.”
