Ingersoll Rand will be rewarded the Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development by the World Environment Center.
Through a global competition, the independent Gold Medal Jury selected Ingersoll Rand’s application for integrating sustainability into the core of their business. The Davidson-based company has set and met ambitious sustainability targets, focusing not just at its own footprint, but aiming to help customers substantially reduce their own impact on the environment, according to a press release announcing the award.
This has been achieved by strong investment in innovative products and services focusing on energy efficiency and emission reductions. Ingersoll Rand is also investing in innovative ways of incorporating renewable energy into its operations, the release says.
Ingersoll Rand’s Michael W. Lamach will accept the award May 16 in Washington, D.C.
The Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development was established in 1985 to recognize significant industry initiatives in global environmental excellence and sustainable development.
