Profile is the first in the industry to adopt environmentally friendly packaging for all of its products.

The award also recognizes Profile’s innovative environmental scorecard initiative that outlines the work the company has done to create a more sustainable environment, including restoring more than 1.5 million acres of land. Through this scorecard, Profile set new benchmarks that hold the company accountable for its environmental goals and pushes the industry to move toward more sustainable practices.

“This award embodies the hard work and commitment every Profile employee has made to protect the environment and enhance the communities we serve,” said Jim Tanner, Profile CEO and president. “We are honored to share this award with other outstanding companies and humbled that the SEAL Awards see value in our mission.”

The awards featured two categories:

SEAL Environmental Initiative Award

This award honors specific environmental and sustainability initiatives. Other award winners include JD.com, Equinix and Shire. Initiative entry applications were reviewed by a judging panel composed of sustainability executives from leading companies, like AMD, Carnival, Micron and Sodexo.     

SEAL Organizational Impact Award

This award recognizes overall corporate sustainability performance and represents the 50 most sustainable companies globally, including Adidas, Apple, Best Buy, BMW, IBM, Microsoft, Nike, Patagonia and Sony. 

“Our sustainability awards celebrate organizations that embrace their ethical responsibility to drive change,” commented Matt Harney, Founder of the SEAL Awards. “Many business sustainability initiatives are overlooked within their own organizations – let alone lauded by the media or public – even though they often make real positive impacts for our planet. We are excited to honor their sustainability leadership.”
