The National Safety Council recently named DuPont as the winner of the 2013 Robert W. Campbell Award. The 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 honored to be named the 2013 recipient of the Robert W. Campbell Award," said DuPont 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."
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."
The Campbell Award is underwritten by the Exxon Mobil Corporation and named for Robert W. Campbell, a safety pioneer and the first president of the National Safety Council. For more information, visit www.CampbellAward.org.
