CHICAGO - R. R.

"Our sustainability approach is highly focused on the areas of resource efficiency, green procurement, waste minimization and stewardship and we work collaboratively to support our customers' sustainability initiatives as well as those of our suppliers."

With respect to the safety element of the award, Manzella added, "In addition to safety compliance, as we worked to create an environment where employees look out for each other, we noted a step change in performance and a dramatic decrease in injuries as reflected by our company injury rates that are more than 60% below the industry average."
