The Conference Board ESG Center Honors Three Companies at the Inaugural ESG Leadership Awards


Tomorrow evening, The Conference Board will honor three companies for their outstanding commitment to sustainability at the inaugural ESG Leadership Awards in New York City.

The ESG Leadership Awards recognizes companies that have set a remarkable example in integrating sustainability into their businesses. These trailblazers demonstrate leadership across the spectrum of sustainability, including developing new technologies to make products from recycled materials, championing community support programs focused on diversity and education, and making significant strides in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and water usage. Through their dedication, they have not only benefited their organizations and stakeholders, but have made positive contributions to society and the natural environment.

"These companies are at the forefront of sustainability. Each of them—in their own, unique way—demonstrates that a healthy environment and prosperous economy can and should go hand in hand. Shining a light on their commitments and innovations is an inspiration to the broader business community," said Steve Odland, President and CEO of The Conference Board.
