AkzoNobel Reveals 2012 FIT Sustainability Award Honorees

AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings Americas (A&AC) announced on May 7 that three U.S. companies have been selected as winners of the third annual FIT Sustainability Award, an industry recognition program devoted to honoring businesses and organizations actively engaged in practices that advance the concepts of sustainability through focus, innovation and talent, the three key principles of FIT.  
       
The 2012 FIT Sustainability Award winners will be recognized at a special industry recognition by-invitation-only program hosted by AkzoNobel on July 19, 2012 at the San Antonio
Convention Center during the I-CAR Industry Event and Collision Industry Conference. The winners include:

• Oka’s Auto Body – Waipahu, Hawaii
• Keenan Auto Body – Clifton Heights, Pa.
• Enterprise-Rent-A-Car – St. Louis, Mo.

“Corporate sustainability is, at its core, a long-term commitment to implementing business practices that meet today’s needs for profitability, personnel development and environmental stewardship; yet at the same time keeps a focused eye on the impact these decisions will have on the future,” said Mike Shesterkin, director of sustainability and new business innovations for A&AC Americas. “The 2012 winners of the FIT Sustainability Award have all taken different approaches to achieving this goal, but collectively share in the passion and pursuit of global sustainability, with leadership that has paved the way for others to follow.”  

The FIT Sustainability Award program was created in 2009 and serves as the umbrella under which the Most Influential Women (MIW) program operates. MIW was established in 1998 to recognize and advance the contributions of women in the collision repair industry. The popularity of MIW, which recognizes individuals, helped serve as a catalyst for the development of the FIT Sustainability Award and its focus on the contributions of key corporate leaders within the collision repair industry.
