Presented by the Manufacturing Leadership Council, the awards recognise companies and individuals that are shaping the future of global manufacturing.
In a latest blog post, Lexmark said that it has received the award for the ninth straight year. The award Lexmark won is the 2020 award in the Sustainability Leadership category.?Lexmark said that according to the council, winners in this category “show a broad and deep commitment to sustainability through product design and end-of-life strategies, meaningful metrics, or policies that ensure sustainable practices internally and across their supply networks.”
The award was give to the company for its rainwater harvesting system project at Lexington, Kentucky, headquarters, and is the second award the system has received. Last year, the American Council of Engineering Companies of Kentucky awarded the project team with the Grand Conceptor Award, the organisation’s top honour in the state, as part of its annual Engineering Excellence Awards programme.
Lexmark explained that since May 2018, more than 15.6 million gallons of harvested rainwater have been used in Lexmark’s cooling towers.
“By improving water quality and reducing our water consumption, this project is making a tremendous difference for Lexmark and the local community — further demonstrating our commitment to environmental sustainability,” said Tonya Jackson, Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer. “We are proud to again be recognized with a Manufacturing Leadership Award.”
