(American Meat Institute)

Applications for AMI’s 2008 Environmental Recognition Awards (MAPS) are now available online at http://meatinstitute.org.


The Environmental Recognition Awards, launched in 2005, recognize the efforts of member companies to reduce their environmental footprint through the development and implementation of an Environmental Management System (EMS). The program consists of four tiers, each with specific criteria related to the development and implementation of an EMS. The flexibility allows individual plants to tailor an EMS to their needs, budget and capacity. Those plants that have successfully implemented the requirements for each tier will be recognized through the awards program. This year, 129 plants from 10 companies achieved one or more of the four EMS tiers.

Applications will be accepted until April 28, 2008. Awards will be presented during AMI’s Environmental Conference, June 5-6, 2008, in Kansas City.
