globalOn Monday, the National Safety Council presented its 2012 Robert W. Campbell Award to Firmenich, at the Opening Session of its Congress & Expo. This award is presented annually to organizations that integrate environmental, health and safety (EHS) management with business operations as a cornerstone of corporate success.

Said the CEO of the organization Patrick Firmenich: “We challenge ourselves every day to lead by example in EHS, and I am convinced that companies who hold EHS as a visible core value become better companies.”

The Campbell Award selection process involves a comprehensive evaluation of an organization’s EHS management system and the impact it has on the bottom line. Promoted by a network of 21 international partners, the Campbell Award recognizes world-class organizations around the globe. Firmenich will be deeply involved in the Award’s ongoing educational efforts, including the development of a case study sharing its success and best practices for use by top business and engineering schools.

Said Janet Froetscher, National Safety Council president and CEO:  “As a Swiss family-owned business with a global presence, Firmenich has proven that a reliance on values and a sense of responsibility ensures lasting success. We applaud Firmenich for its deep and heartfelt commitment to EHS in the pursuit of its long term vision of business excellence."

The Campbell Award is underwritten by the ExxonMobil Foundation and named for Robert W. Campbell, a safety pioneer and the first president of the National Safety Council.

Firmenich is the world’s largest privately-owned company in the fragrance and flavor business. Founded in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1895, it has created many of the world’s best-known perfumes and flavors that we enjoy each day. Each year, it invests around 10% of its turnover in R&D, reflecting its continuous desire to understand, share and sublimate the best that nature has to offer. Firmenich had an annual turnover of 2.63 billion Swiss Francs at end June 2012
