In 2016, the OSI Food Solutions located in the UK was awarded the prestigious Globe of Honor award by the Safety Council of Britain because of its amazing work on managing the environmental risks. The award was presented to OSI Food Solutions at Drapers’ Hall where the Awards luncheon was being held in London City. OSI buys former Tyson Foods plant on South Side for $7.4M.
The Globe of Honor awards is an award that is presented to an organization because of its demonstration in environmental management. In 2016, 18 organizations worldwide were given the award. For an organization to compete for the prestigious award, it has to score a maximum of five stars in the audit scheme of environmental management that is done by the Safety Council of Britain. Additionally, the company should also demonstrate their excellence in the management of the environment to an independent panel of experts; this is all scrutinized from the floor of the facility to the organization’s bathroom.
The Chair of the Safety Council in Britain is Lynda Armstrong. During the luncheon, she was the one who announced the Globe of Honor award for 2016 to OSI Food Solutions. Lynda was pleased to present the awards to the organizations that won. She noted that the companies that are winning these awards are the ones that are on the forefront of increasing the adoption of an integrated approach, as they order protection of the environment with the same regard as health and safety. This kind of strategy allows organizations to adopt more sustainable operations.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Safety Council of Britain, Mike Robinson presented OSI Food Solutions with the award. The company Environmental Manager for Europe, Kelly Grimwood was the one who received the award on behalf of the company. Mike Robinson was keen to indicate that leadership was an important factor when a company is achieving excellence. He stated that those who won the Globe of Honor awards set amazing examples of having best practices that can be looked at by other companies.
The companies that were awarded had adopted the best environmental practices in their companies and the journey that they took to get to this position is remarkable.
