The 2011 Sustainability Achievement Award was presented to Rubberlite Inc.
The 2010 Sustainability Achievement Award was presented to United Engravers, Inc. for their use of wind energy, green renovation, and increased production of liquid I-plates (or "Island-plates"), resulting in a reduction of emissions.
The 2009 Sustainability Achievement Award was presented to Mark/Trece Inc. for their use of a paper compactor/baler to control waste by recycling all paper, magazine, and corrugated scrap. The company benefited from fewer waste management pick-ups and they also receive payment for pre-baled bundles. The award was presented at the FPPA 12th Annual Convention in Tucson, Arizona.
