On the June 5, 2009, Rondo was proud to receive our first environmental acknowledgement, when Gonz Marquez, Rondo’s Quality and Environment Manager, accepted the Bronze Partnership Award from the Hon. Carmel Tebbutt MP, the NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Climate Change and the Environment.
Out of 300 organisations that applied, Rondo is one of 13 businesses to be handed the award of Bronze level in the recognition scheme, and the first to gain this title in the Metal Industry.
To meet the requirements of the recognition scheme, Rondo provided details on our environmental initiatives and the company’s commitment to these programs. Our submission included information on our on-site recycling strategies, Mission Zero program, Senior Management’s level of involvement and the communication of environmental initiatives to Rondo employees via internal publications and in-house toolbox meetings.
The acknowledgement is a great honour for all employees who have assisted in reviewing Rondo’s environmental footprint in the past 18 months, at the current St Mary’s site and also Rondo’s new Erskine Park site.
As Rondo continually looks for ways to improve the environmental footprint of our operations, this acknowledgement assures us that we are taking the right steps towards achieving the goals set out in our Mission Zero program.
