EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. (EA) was honored with a Business Achievement Award for its Sustainability Program by the Environmental Business Journal (EBJ), the leading business newsletter for the environmental industry.
The Hunt Valley, Md.-based firm was honored at EBJ’s 12th annual awards program, the Environmental Industry Summit and 2009 Business Achievement Awards ceremony, held March 3 in Coronado, Calif. At the ceremony, EA was recognized for its outstanding achievements through its Sustainability Program in the category of Corporate Innovation.
EA, a leading provider of environmental services, launched its Corporate Sustainability Program in 2008, and since then has invested significant time and resources to incorporate sustainability concepts into its business operations and project delivery systems. Notable program results include a 35 percent reduction in paper use at its corporate headquarters, the recycling of more than 2,000 pounds of electronic equipment, and the purchase of carbon credits to offset the impacts of corporate air travel. Most recently, the company began greening its fleet of vehicles with the addition of several hybrid vehicles.
“A core team of more than 60 employees has been actively involved in developing and implementing our corporate-wide Sustainability Program,” said Ian MacFarlane, EA president and CEO. “It is the results of their efforts, as well as the individual actions of the entire EA community, that are being recognized with this prestigious award.”
