The National Safety Council presented its 2013 Robert W. Campbell Award to DuPont at the opening session of its congress and expo, the world’s largest annual gathering of safety and health professionals.
This award is presented annually to organizations that integrate environmental, health and safety (EHS) management with business operations as a cornerstone of corporate success.
“DuPont is honoured to be named the 2013 recipient of the Robert W. Campbell Award,” said DuPont chair and CEO Ellen Kullman. “For more than 200 years, DuPont core values, including safety and health, have been the cornerstone of who we are and what we stand for. This commitment has helped us grow into the organization we are today.”
In its 10th year, the selection of the Campbell award recipient involves a comprehensive evaluation of an organization’s EHS management system and the impact it has on the bottom line. Promoted by a network of 21 international partners, the Campbell award recognizes world-class organizations around the globe. DuPont will be deeply involved in the award’s ongoing educational efforts, including the development of a case study sharing its success and best practices for use by top business and engineering schools.
"As we mark the 10th anniversary of the Campbell award, it is an honor to recognize DuPont and its multi-faceted approach to EHS management,” said Janet Froetscher, National Safety Council president and CEO. “We think it is commendable that DuPont is working to be the world’s most dynamic science company, creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer and healthier life for people everywhere. As DuPont looks toward the future, its commitment to EHS in the pursuit of business excellence should be applauded.”
