Applications are now being accepted for the Environmental Respect Awards (ERAs), an annual awards program honouring the environmental stewardship demonstrated by agri-retailers who sell, handle or apply crop protection products. 

Is your retail location committed to environmental stewardship? Submit an application for the 2019 Environmental Respect Awards, to be recognized for your good work. The ERAs are sponsored by Corteva Agriscience and presented by CropLife and Agribusiness Global magazines.

Five regional winners will be selected for the North American category. Each winner will be chosen based on their commitment to operating their business in an environmentally sound manner and demonstrating leadership in compliance, proper material handling and application techniques, and safety.

The ERAs look specifically for achievements in the following areas:

  • Physical plant improvements
  • Waste minimization
  • Emergency response readiness
  • Product safety/proper use education
  • Personal commitment
  • Customer involvement
  • Employee education
  • Community outreach
  • Innovative technology
