Resolute earned top marks for sustainability leadership at Business Intelligence Group’s (BIG) 2018 Sustainability Awards. BIG recognizes organizations and individuals who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice, and who honor their sustainability commitments.
This marks the second consecutive year Resolute has been recognized by the Sustainability Awards. In 2017, Seth Kursman, vice president, Corporate Communications, Sustainability and Government Affairs, received the top individual honor.
“We are particularly proud of receiving the highest rating in 2018, as it recognizes our comprehensive sustainability strategy, which is designed to enhance our competitive position. Our approach reinforces our vision that profitability and sustainability drive our future,” said Kursman. “As an industry leader, we’ve moved beyond minimal regulatory compliance and environmental incident management to commit to transparency and maintaining annual sustainability reporting.”
The award selection process also considered the concrete actions Resolute has taken to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve resource efficiency, including our 76% reduction in GHG emissions (scope 1 and 2) over 2000 levels.
“Sustainability has become integral to so many, but these nominees delivered on their individual promises and corporate goals,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer, Business Intelligence Group. “We are so proud to reward and recognize all of our winners and finalists, as they provide the leadership and vision needed to protect our environment.”
In recognition of our industry-leading sustainability performance, Resolute won over 20 regional, North American and international awards and distinctions in 2017. For more information, please visit the Awards and Recognition section of our website.
