Piedmont Plastics® receives IAPD Environmental Excellence Award for its environmental business practices.
October 7th, 2016 – On October 7th in Phoenix, Arizona, Piedmont Plastics® was a silver–level recipient of IAPD’s Environmental Excellence Award, which celebrates environmentally responsible practices of IAPD member companies. This is the second year that Piedmont Plastics® has submitted an application to participate in IAPD’s Environmental Excellence program. Piedmont Plastics was a bronze-level recipient in 2015. The application covers topics such as recycling, conservation, employee engagement and community outreach.
"We are very excited to be recognized for our company's work to create a culture of sustainability. Our plastic recycling program, along with our other environmental efforts, is a collaboration of all of our employees working together to make a difference. We feel honored to be apart of IAPD and to be recognized as an environmental steward in an industry that is often subject to undue environmental criticism." - Tyler Booth, Piedmont Plastics® Vice President.
We have effectively reduced our environmental footmark through continuous sustainability projects at many of our branches nationwide. We have improved our environmental awareness with the formation of a company-wide green team, plastic reclamation program, and a Natural Solutions Product line drawing attention to products containing recycled material. We are proud of this environmental achievement and look forward to the continuous improvement of our corporate sustainability practices.
