Madison, WI USA. (October 8, 2019)
Promega Corporation today announced it received the 2019
Deloitte Wisconsin 75™ Distinguished Performer Award for Sustainability recognizing a "green" corporation that balances economic growth, social equity and environmental management. Promega also ranked No. 41 on Deloitte’s annual Wisconsin 75 list of the 75 largest private companies in Wisconsin, based on sales revenue.
The Promega 2019 Corporate Responsibility Report of sustainable practices and resulting trends through the previous year documents how, over the last three years, an overall culture of sustainability resulted in an 8% reduction in the company’s carbon-to-revenue footprint.
"For us, really engaging our employees and understanding what resonates with them has led to efforts that are the most impactful for the company overall," says Corey Meek, Corporate Responsibility Program Lead at Promega.
Deloitte’s annual Wisconsin 75 list salutes the largest privately held Wisconsin-based companies. These companies play a key role in the state’s economy. Wisconsin 75 award winners are selected based on annual sales revenue.
In 2018, Promega received the Wisconsin 75 Distinguished Performer Award for Talent, recognizing a company's commitment to employees by encouraging well-being, professional development and empowerment in their own career.
To be eligible for Deloitte’s Wisconsin 75 recognition, companies must have a majority ownership by an individual(s), family, employee stock ownership plan, or private equity firm. Public companies are eligible when greater than 50 percent of the value or vote of the shares are owned by individuals, family, an employee stock ownership plan, or private equity. Additionally, companies must have annual sales revenue of at least USD 50,000. The Wisconsin 75 excludes cooperatives and accounting, tax, legal, and consulting service companies.
“The Wisconsin 75 list doesn’t just include some of our state’s most recognizable brands. It also highlights many exciting and emerging companies,” said Scott Wrobbel, US central region leader and Wisconsin managing partner of Deloitte LLP. “Deloitte is delighted to recognize the important role these private companies play in Wisconsin’s economy.”
