Underscoring Belkin’s commitment to find more responsible ways to build products
LOS ANGELES – August 30, 2023 – Today, the Business Intelligence Group named Belkin a winner in the 2023 Sustainability Awards program, recognizing Belkin’s transition to post-consumer recycled plastics (PCR) in the Sustainability Initiative of the Year category. The Sustainability Awards honor those people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.
In the last 12 months, Belkin made a deliberate, methodical decision to take plastic waste from consumers and repurpose it to create new products. Belkin is committed to launching responsibly developed new products while also revising existing, high-volume portfolios in the catalogue, introducing PCR plastics, 100% plastic-free packaging and reduced packaging sizes. In its first phase kicked off earlier this year, Belkin is transitioning 17 of its most popular products to incorporate a minimum of 72% PCR without compromising on quality, durability, and safety.
“We are proud to reward and recognize Belkin for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
