Selected Sustainability Award Winner Perspectives:

“Receiving the SEAL Business Sustainability Award is a testament to ZorroSign’s enduring dedication to sustainability,” said Shamsh Hadi, CEO and co-founder of ZorroSign. “From our inception, we have been fervently committed to not only reducing paper usage but also to actively contributing to global reforestation efforts. Our initiatives include the innovative Save a Tree/Plant a Tree program, our collaboration with One Tree Planted, and significant contributions to the Plant for the Planet’s Trillion Tree Campaign.”

“As a global organization of our size and reach, Lenovo has the opportunity and responsibility to be driving positive impact.  A sustainable future with tech requires us all to foster innovation and promote initiatives that will speed up the transition to a circular economy.  This recognition is both humbling and motivating to keep driving actions with purpose.” – Claudia Contreras, Executive Director Global Sustainability Services, Lenovo

“We are proud to be a winner in the Sustainable Service category of the 2024 Business Sustainability Awards, our second time earning this honor,” said Jon Mellon, President of Global Sales, Marketing and Field Operations at Blancco. “Being recognized as an ESG leader validates one of our core values: to act as environmental stewards and safeguard the future of our planet by eliminating processes and practices that are unsustainable. The UN’s 2024 Global E-waste Monitor revealed that a record 62 billion KG of e-waste was produced in 2022 with e-waste generation outpacing formal recycling by 5x. Strong e-waste reforms and new strategies to circumvent challenges arising from inadequate formal recycling of IT equipment and devices must become a top priority. Blancco’s certifiable data erasure processes and solutions enable organizations to reuse more equipment, eliminating the need in many cases for physical destruction of operational assets holding sensitive data. The data management best practices Blancco has been advocates of for 27 years also help organizations decrease their carbon footprint from reduced energy consumption stemming from data storage. Furthermore, as a firm believer in the circular economy, Blancco partners with charitable organizations such as The Turing Trust, which enables businesses to donate devices, including laptops and computers, for repair, refurbishment and redistribution to schools in sub-Saharan Africa. “Across our customers and partners to date, we’ve seen more than half a billion devices erased and reused, however, we are only at the beginning of our journey of what can be achieved.”

“We are deeply honored to receive the SEAL Business Sustainability Award, a recognition that underscores the transformative potential of our Eco Financing initiative. This innovative approach not only enables cash-strapped Americans to afford energy-efficient appliances, but also actively contributes to a healthier planet by reducing energy consumption and emissions. At Enervee, we believe that financial barriers shouldn’t prevent anyone from making sustainable choices. This award fuels our commitment to make energy-efficient options accessible to all, ultimately helping to shape a more sustainable future for our communities and the environment.” — Matthias Kurwig, Cofounder & CEO, Enervee

“It is with gratefulness and a deep sense of responsibility that we accept the 2024 SEAL Business Sustainability Award for our environmental initiatives. Leading sustainably isn’t just a concept—it’s a core value woven into all our businesses and functions. As we strive for a more resilient future, our commitment goes beyond reducing our footprint; we are dedicated to helping our customers on their sustainability journey, ensuring that as we grow, we do so with the environment in mind. Together, we are ‘Making Life Better’ for our employees, customers, shareholders and the planet.” – Mary Betsch, VP Sustainability at Ingersoll Rand, Inc.

Winning this award only strengthens our sense of responsibility to expand our agroforest as quickly as possible and make a tangible, meaningful and sustainable impact in South Africa and beyond. This is part of our long-term efforts to secure the future of our planet.”
