Teknion has been recognized by the U.S. Government’s General Services Administration (GSA) with its first Evergreen Award in the Furniture category. Evergreen Awards were also presented to Bentley Prince Street in the Furnishings category, and to Kyocera Mita – a manufacturer of printers and digital multiple function printers – in the Technologies and Electronics category.
Sponsored by the GSA Integrated Workplace Acquisition Center, the Evergreen Awards recognize companies that demonstrate environmental conscientiousness with programs focused on recycling, affirmative procurement of supply and waste reduction. The award is granted to the government contractor that actively demonstrates the highest overall commitment to environmentally sound manufacturing and operating procedures in five categories: Waste Prevention, Recycling, Affirmative Procedure, Environmental Preferability and Model Facility.
The Evergreen Awards were presented at the GSA’s Quality Partnership Council meeting on March 3, 2009, in Arlington, Va.
