NOW Receives 2010 Illinois Governors Sustainability Award:
I have the pleasure of announcing that NOW Foods has received a 2010 Illinois Governor’s Sustainability Award. This marks the third consecutive year that NOW has been a recipient of this award. NOW is one of only seven companies in Illinois to be awarded with the 2010 Continuous Improvement recognition for on-going sustainability efforts.
ISTC (and NOW) believes that the key to sustainability is being less wasteful with materials, energy, and natural and community resources. "These businesses and organizations have shown that it is possible to create and maintain conditions under which people and the environment can exist in productive harmony, and fulfill the social and economic requirements of present and future generations," said Manohar Kulkarni, ISTC Director.
