Marstel-Day has been named a winner of the Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE) EcoLeadership Award for the third year in a row. The award is given to a company for its leadership and commitment to creating and maintaining an environmentally sustainable workplace.
“We’re honored to again be recognized for our efforts to operate an environmentally-sustainable business,” said Rebecca R. Rubin, President and CEO of Marstel-Day. “Going green is good for the planet, good for society, and good for the company’s workforce. We commend AWE for its efforts to recognize companies for their work.”
Award applicants undergo a rigorous evaluation process by an independent review panel comprised of academic and business professionals. Among the practices evaluated are waste minimization, energy efficiency, water conservation, pollution prevention, environmentally conscious travel, and community and client outreach.
This year, Marstel-Day was also recognized for its efforts to foster sustainability within the community through activities such as facilitating environmental workshops, chairing green business councils, acting as a guest blogger and presenting key research to government agencies.
“These initiatives are a natural outgrowth of the increasing maturity of our internal environmental program,” said Rubin. “They build on the tremendous work by our employee-led Green Vision Council, and demonstrate our commitment to sharing our learnings about sustainable practices within the broader communities where we live and work.”
Marstel-Day is an idea-driven, value-based environmental company offering green consulting to the public and private sectors. AWE is a non-profit organization whose goal is to recognize businesses that are leaders in all aspects of workplace excellence within the greater Washington, DC area.
