GOJO Sustainability Report Wins National Recognition

"We are fortunate to be in a business where we can make a real difference in social sustainability -– saving lives and making life better for people through the types of products and programs we provide," said Marcella Kanfer Rolnick, GOJO's vice chair.

GOJO Industries Inc. announced that its 2011 Sustainability Report was honored in a nationwide competition to recognize work in corporate social responsibility. The report was recognized Feb. 11 in the PR News CSR Awards competition, in which attracted GOJO was a nominee in the Annual Report category along with Hormel Foods Corp., Office Depot Foundation, Wells Fargo & Co., and Excellus BlueCross BlueShield. The award was presented at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

GOJO set ambitious goals at its 2009 Sustainability Summit in social, environmental, and economic sustainability. The 2011 sustainability report outlined progress toward each goal and told the story largely through the voices and experiences of GOJO employees.

"We are fortunate to be in a business where we can make a real difference in social sustainability -– saving lives and making life better for people through the types of products and programs we provide," said Marcella Kanfer Rolnick, GOJO's vice chair. "Through our Sustainability Report, we will continue to share our efforts to increase sustainability, green product innovation, and reduce operational impacts through reduction in water use, waste, and greenhouse gases."

The GOJO Sustainability Report was produced under the direction of Nicole Koharik, GOJO global sustainability marketing director, with creative concept, writing, and design by Innis Maggiore, Canton.
