SEAL Awards has announced the winners of the 2022 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards (BSA) – and Allegion is among the top companies being honored for leadership, innovation and commitment to sustainable business practices.

SEAL – which stands for sustainability, environmental achievement and leadership – annually recognizes organizations across four distinct award categories: environmental initiative, sustainable innovation, sustainable product and sustainable service.

“Companies have a unique opportunity and responsibility to drive environmental progress where politics cannot. Our corporate sustainability awards celebrate organizations that embrace the responsibility to effect positive change,” commented Matt Harney, SEAL Awards’ founder. “Most business sustainability initiatives are unglamorous and invisible to the general public despite having significant positive impacts – we hope our awards bring some much-needed recognition to both the activities and the leaders behind them.”

Allegion was among the notable companies honored with a SEAL Environmental Initiative BSA. Other companies receiving awards in this category included General Electric, GM and P&G.

Allegion was recognized for a water reduction project implemented across two of our manufacturing sites in Mexico’s Baja California region. This proactive initiative – a collaboration between the local team and our corporate environmental, health and safety (EHS) experts – used reverse osmosis technology and automation to not only minimize the amount of water needed in manufacturing processes but also allow the in-house wastewater treatment plant to increase its recycled water supply as well.

“At Allegion, safeguarding the environment aligns to our core values like ‘do the right thing’ and ‘this is your business, run with it,” said Allegion Senior Vice President of Global Operations and Integrated Supply Chain Cindy Farrer. “We are honored to receive a SEAL Award for Environmental Initiatives – and even more grateful for our innovative team members who followed these values. Their water reduction initiative is driving a more positive impact in the communities where we operate while also making our manufacturing processes more sustainable and efficient.”

What’s more, the Allegion experts involved in the water savings project have already started sharing their learnings across our global manufacturing facilities. This project is one way Allegion is making progress toward our company’s long-term environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals, which include achieving 20-percent reduction in water usage by 2030.
