MAPEI received the 2019 GreenStep International award for companies with an international presence, and a clear focus on sustainability and transparency.
The award was accepted by MAPEI Corporation’s Director of Technical Services, Jim Whitfield, and MAPEI Corporation’s Sustainability Manager, Brittany Storm, at a banquet at the Dalton Golf & Country Club in Dalton, Georgia.
MAPEI has a strong global commitment to sustainable environmental practices, said the company in a statement. Since 1994, the year that MAPEI’s first quality management system was certified, 42 of MAPEI’s subsidiaries have been certified with various ISO standards.
Said Whitfield: “MAPEI is honored to receive this GreenStep International award from Floor Covering Weekly. It recognizes our commitment, not just in the U.S., but internationally, to transparency and to being good environmental stewards.”
“At MAPEI, this commitment is built into everything we do and reflects in our triple bottom line – people, products and planet – whether it is employee training, product documentation and transparency, or operating processes that are designed to reduce our carbon footprint and maximize our environmental handprint,” added Storm.
With global headquarters in Italy, MAPEI specializes in developing chemical products for every aspect of construction, from waterproofing and structural strengthening to concrete repairs and tunnel building.
