“FTA has been hosting the Sustainability Excellence Awards, and its precursor the Environmental Excellence Awards, for 20 years. When we first started the program, the word ‘sustainability’ was barely in our vocabulary. Now, it’s engrained in all operations!” says FTA Sustainability Consultant Doreen Monteleone. “This year’s winners are the best-of-the-best and demonstrate the highest level of sustainability programs. We encourage others to follow their lead.”
