Bacardi Awards Employees for Remarkable Sustainability Efforts

In celebration of Earth Month, family-owned Bacardi honors employee-led environmental sustainability-related initiatives in its 3rd Annual Bacardi Limited Good Spirited Awards program. Employees received recognition for their outstanding environmental achievements within five different award categories celebrating the implementation of sustainability improvements, brand innovation or activity, employees championing green initiatives, and external partnerships delivering upon the Bacardi vision to a balanced impact on the environment.

“It’s inspiring to see the ongoing commitment Bacardi employees have toward building a more sustainable future where they live and work,” says Rodolfo Nervi, vice president of global safety, quality, and sustainability for Bacardi. “What makes these accolades even more meaningful is that each was nominated by their peers from around the world.”

The eco-conscious endeavors provide Bacardi with long-term improvements for a more sustainable future across operations, packaging and responsible sourcing and drive the company closer to its vision to reach a net-zero impact—to put back into the environment at least as much as it takes away. In support of the Good Spirited mission, the award trophies are made from recycled oak and acknowledge activities between February 2016 – March 2017.
