The Sustainability Award recognizes companies for offering their products or services in a way that's better for the environment.

“We were up against some tough competition, but the emphasis on our triple-bottom-line philosophy, our community involvement and our efforts toward energy reduction at our facility made all the difference,” says Bill Gray, president, Uponor North America.

An Uponor team represented by Senior Management Committee members and members of the Sustainability Team were in attendance at the event, which was held at Aria in downtown Minneapolis.

“This award is a great honor for our company,” says Gray. “It validates the hard work and efforts in sustainability done by many at Uponor, and it helps promote Uponor as a sustainable, vibrant company that is invested in long-term growth and success.”
