Crop Production Services (CPS) has been selected as The 2016 Spirit of Respect Award Winner, one of 16 agribusiness companies worldwide to receive recognition for their efforts in promoting environmental stewardship. Winners were selected in early April at the headquarters of Meister Media Worldwide in Willoughby, Ohio.

The Environmental Respect Awards, sponsored by DuPont Crop Protection and presented by CropLife® and AgriBusiness Global® magazine, are the agricultural industry’s highest recognition for environmental stewardship. The Awards are given to agricultural retailers worldwide, those who serve farmers and ranchers with the nutrients, crop protection and agronomic information and services critical to effective crop production. Each year a panel of industry experts gathers to recognize achievement in environmental stewardship, professional excellence, and community involvement.

The Spirit of Respect Award honors a former Regional Award winner for their continued improvement and ongoing dedication to the ideals and goals of the Environmental Respect Awards program, with 2016 marking the program’s 26th year honoring stewardship, safety and community outreach efforts of the world’s leading agricultural retailers and distributors.

This facility won its first regional award in 2009.

“DuPont is pleased to congratulate the winners of the 2015 Environmental Respect Awards and applauds their accomplishment in environmental stewardship,” said Tim Glenn, president, DuPont Crop Protection. “These leaders are helping to advance environmental safety as well as the safe use of agricultural products, and we hope they will inspire others who share our passion and commitment to elevate environmental stewardship around the world.”

“It’s through the conscientious efforts of these ag business and the crop producers they serve that this nation is assured of a safe and bountiful food supply,” said Paul Schrimpf, group editor of CropLife magazine. “We’re delighted to be able to gain them some recognition for their environmentalism.”

Along with the Spirit of Respect Award winner, 15 regional winners will receive their trophies and four of those 13 will be named Ambassador of Respect; one each from North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Europe/Middle East/Africa.
