2017 Beckers Sustainability Awards
The winners in this year’s awards were announced. Congratulations and keep up the great work!
The Beckers Sustainability Awards were founded in 2017 by the Sustainability Committee. The two awards – one for social and one for environmental sustainability – are designed to recognize and reward colleagues who are actively working towards our vision of becoming the most sustainable coatings company in the world.
In 2017, the Social Sustainability Award went to Willem van Heerden and Charmaine Jansen of Beckers South Africa for their work on the Eketsang Student Program. The Economic & Environment Award went to Shashi Veera and JD Bu of Beckers Malaysia who managed the solar panel project at our site there.
“Charmaine and I are proud to win this award - it means a lot”, says Willem van Heerden. “It does take effort and time to ensure this initiative bears fruit and the students benefit. Being recognized in this way makes it worthwhile.
“This award is a testament to the efforts and team work of all our colleagues”, says JD Bu of Beckers Malaysia. “It has strengthened our resolve to push further for a sustainable world.”
