Albany, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
Davies Office, based in Albany, NY, is one of only three companies to receive the highest distinction awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) 2011 Greenbuild Green Exhibitor Award, which acknowledges the outstanding efforts of exhibiting companies who are successfully minimizing the negative environmental impact effects of participating in conferences and tradeshows. The Greenbuild International Conference and Expo was held in Toronto in October of last year.
Competing companies were rated in five categories and recognized at three different levels. Of the nearly 1000 exhibitors only Davies Office, Sylvania and Kohler received the highest distinction, the Leadership level, for going above and beyond the Greenbuild Mandatory Exhibition Green Guidelines at the event. “The Green Exhibitor Award gives us an opportunity to recognize those exhibitors who have demonstrated a tremendous commitment to sustainable trade show practices,” said Kimberly Lewis, Senior Vice President, Community Advancement and Greenbuild, USGBC.
“We are thrilled to be honored by the USGBC an organization with a legacy of environmental stewardship. Davies Office has been at the forefront of sustainability for 60 years and we are committed to environmentally-responsible practices and not just our remanufacturing processes but across all the areas of how we do business,” commented Bill Davies, President of Davies Office.
