IMA-NA Associate Member, Vortex Valves, recently received an award related to their industrial plastics recycling program. Through their work with the Solutions-Based Customer Recycling Award Program (S.C.R.A.P) Vortex achieved Cope Plastics’ Green Level Milestone Award in March 2016 by diverting 50,000 pounds of industrial plastic from landfills. This award is an excellent example of the various sustainability programs IMA-NA members participate in. Sustainability programs are an important aspect of corporate responsibility across four main areas: environment, economics, politics, and culture. Vortex's plastic recycling program is just one aspect to their sustainable development efforts, which also include a recycling of many other materials, investing in their communities, and conservation programs. IMA-NA's Sustainability Task Force is always looking for new ways to engage with and encourage sustainability across the industry. If you are interested in getting involved or highlighting the efforts of your company please contact Darrell Smith or Ariel Hill-Davis.
