Eaton has been ranked as a leader on the Carbon Disclosure Project’s 2012 Carbon Disclosure Leadership and Performance Leadership Indexes. Eaton, a diversified industrial manufacturer, is one of only 11 S&P companies to earn leadership status on both indexes in this year’s CDP ranking. This is the first time Eaton has been featured on the Performance Leadership Index, an achievement granted to only 15 companies.

The International Institute for Sustainable Development’s Vice President, Henry David Venema, has been named to Canada’s 2013 Clean 50 for the work of IISD’s Lake Winnipeg Bioeconomy Project. Venema was selected from 500 candidates. The award recognizes the contribution of IISD’s Water Innovation Centre in advancing sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past two years. The award also notes Venema’s leadership in developing an innovative strategy to create economic opportunities for Manitoba while reducing nutrient loading within the Lake Winnipeg Basin.

The InterTradeIreland Innovation awards will give 10,000 euro prizes to winners in each of six categories: agri-food, life sciences, green technology, business services, social innovation, and creative sciences. Category winners will then compete to win the overall title of “Innovation of the Year” which awards the winner with a communications and media advertising package from the Irish Times worth 150,000 euros. The competition is open to the most innovative firms in Northern Ireland.
