Wuxi Production Site, which executed the best sustainable production practices while continuing to deliver high value products; and

DyStar China’s sales offices and laboratory, which implemented several programs that have reduced their consumption of electricity and water, on a continuing basis.

Several factors were considered when determining the best performing Production Site and Office for the 2012 Award: Leadership, Teamwork, Communication, Capacity Building, Motivation, and integration of sustainable production practices into daily operations.
