Harlan Stone Presented with Sustainability Honor
Norwalk, CT, August 22, 2018-The Business Intelligence Group named Halstead/Metroflor Group CEO Harlan Stone a Sustainability Hero in the 2018 Sustainability Awards program.
The Sustainability Awards honor those people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission. Metroflor Corporation was also named a Sustainability Initiative of the Year (Project) finalist for achieving the JUST social justice label for its Asian manufacturing facility.
The longstanding “Made in China” stigma leads many American companies to hide the origin of their products made there. Stone was acknowledged for the leap of faith he took to become completely transparent about the processes, product ingredients, and social responsibility element of the Elegant Home-Tech manufacturing facility, which culminated in achieving the first-ever JUST label for a Chinese manufacturer.
