FSC Wins National Conservation Achievement Award
June 23, 2015
Since 1966, the National Wildlife Federation – a member of the Forest Stewardship Council environmental chamber – has honored individuals and organizations with its Conservation Achievement Award, known as the “Connie.” Designed to recognize outstanding contributions to protecting wildlife, previous honorees include Robert Redford, Vice President Al Gore, President Jimmy Carter and Bette Midler.
FSC was incredibly honored to receive a Connie at the 2015 awards ceremony. Also honored were William McDonough, the globally recognized sustainable design leader, US Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and US Congressman Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska.
For more than 75 years, the National Wildlife Federation has been a leading voice for wildlife, inspiring Americans to protect wildlife and habitat for our children’s future and fostering the next generation of conservationists.
Barbara Bramble, Senior Director of International Wildlife Conservation at the National Wildlife Federation serves on FSC International’s Board of Directors. She introduced the FSC award in a short video.
Ian Hanna, Director of Strategic Development at FSC International received the award on behalf of the organization.
