ACC Honors Industry Leaders with Inaugural Sustainability Leadership Awards

Chemistry plays an integral role in solving our world’s sustainability challenges. The American Chemistry Council (ACC) is pleased to recognize member companies that are leading the way in advancing safe, innovative, effective and economically viable solutions with its inaugural Sustainability Leadership Awards, presented June 4, 2019, at the ACC Annual Meeting.

ACC established its Sustainability Leadership Awards program to recognize outstanding member company achievements in three priority areas covered by ACC’s Sustainability Principles: Transparency & Collaboration, Environmental Protection & Circularity and Societal Contributions. In addition, ACC’s “External Collaborator” Award recognizes a non-member organization that has collaborated with an ACC member on a project, product or initiative that has made significant contributions to sustainability.
