White House Honors Corporate Environmental Sustainability Leaders

White House Honors Corporate Environmental Sustainability Leaders

The OIA SWG is an effort of over 200 outdoor industry companies including Timberland, who attended the Champion of Change White House event. “It was an incredible honor to be part of the delegation that received this award on behalf of the OIA Sustainability Working Group,” said Betsy Blaisdell, Timberland’s Senior Manager of Environmental Stewardship. “Timberland has always been proud to be a part of the OIA’s collaborative effort to address sustainability challenges and create positive environmental change in our industry, and to have our collective efforts recognized at a national level is both gratifying and encouraging. There’s lots of good work still to be done to improve our industry’s environmental and social impacts.”
