Tustin, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
International Environmental Alliance (IEA), a provider of comprehensive, sustainable waste management, recycling and diversion services for businesses nationwide, and The Body Shop, the original, ethical cosmetics company, are the recipients of the 2012 Innovation in Sustainability Award, as announced by the Professional Retail Store Maintenance association (PRSM) at the PRSM2012 Annual Conference today. IEA was recognized for designing and implementing a highly effective sustainable waste management and recycling system throughout The Body Shop’s distribution center and corporate offices.
“We are delighted to be honored with the prestigious PRSM Innovation in Sustainability Award for our commitment to helping companies realize the smartest, most sustainable solutions for waste stream management,” said Jeff Klein, President and COO of IEA. “We will continue to innovate and provide our clients with the most forward-reaching waste, recycling and diversion services available.”
The Innovation in Sustainability Award, PRSM’s newest award honoring excellence in performance in the retail environment, showcases companies with innovative sustainability accomplishments in operations and/or outstanding work performance within the industry.
IEA’s award-winning implementation was designed to divert as much material as possible from The Body Shop’s facility’s waste stream and route it to viable recycling markets rather than to the landfill. Through this collaboration, IEA and The Body Shop were able to: reduce greenhouse gases and benefit the environment; save time and increase the facility’s efficiency; reduce the overall cost of waste handling; help The Body Shop maintain compliance with regulations; and enhance The Body Shop’s overall business success.
