ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT) announced today that it has received the annual Illinois Continuous Improvement Award for environmental excellence. It is the eighth time Abbott has received the award for its efforts to safeguard the environment and integrate sustainability initiatives throughout its operations in Illinois.

"Abbott's efforts in Illinois are an important part of our broader work to safeguard the environment through sustainable business practices across all of our global operations," said Corlis Murray, vice president, Global Engineering Services, Abbott. "We are taking a multi-faceted approach to minimizing our impact on the environment; from the way we manufacture our products, to how we manage our facilities, to engaging and involving employees in environmental initiatives. We're looking across our businesses to find ways to do things differently, which will improve the environment and strengthen our business over the long-term."

Abbott was recognized for implementing 11 projects aimed at reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and waste, and saving water and energy at its Lake County, Ill. headquarters and manufacturing facilities. These initiatives included:

  • Implementing a "green" roof that improves energy efficiency and reduces rainwater runoff
  • Reducing CO2 emissions by improving cooling efficiency at the central information technology (IT) data center
  • Establishing a program to recycle employees' personal electronic equipment
  • Eliminating more than 44 tons of waste annually by recycling packaging material from incoming packages
