ESG Leaders Recognized At 2022 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards

December 12, 2022SEAL Awards today announced the winners of the 2022 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards, honoring their leadership, innovation, and commitment to sustainable business practices.

2022 SEAL Sustainability Award honorees ranged from global brands (like Disneyland, General Electric, GM, Microsoft, Oracle, Proctor & Gamble, and Samsung) to high-growth start-ups and scale-ups (like AiDash, Flock Freight, Optoro, and PATH).

“Companies have a unique opportunity and responsibility to drive environmental progress where politics cannot. Our corporate sustainability awards celebrate organizations that embrace the responsibility to effect positive change,” commented Matt Harney, SEAL Awards’ Founder. “Most business sustainability initiatives are unglamorous and invisible to the general public despite having significant positive impacts – we hope our awards bring some much-needed recognition to both the activities and the leaders behind them.” 

“Using innovative automation technology, Green Badger is accelerating sustainable construction around the world and is honored our efforts are recognized by receiving a SEAL Sustainable Service Award,” said Tommy Linstroth, Founder and CEO of Green Badger. “The built industry contributes heavily to global environmental impact, so we have a great responsibility and immense opportunity for positive change. Our commitment is to make sustainable construction affordable, attainable, and effortless to the entire industry so more of tomorrow’s buildings are designed and built with minimal environmental impact.”
