What's UP at Waste-Not?
Waste-Not Recycling: Nominated for a Better Business Bureau "Torch Award" for Business Ethics!
Businesses nominated for the BBB torch Awards for Ethics work with university students from the colleges of business at Colorado State University, the University of Northern Colorado and the University of Wyoming. Students prepare award entries on behalf of the nominee, evaluating the ways in which the business promotes the six TRUST! principles of Ethical Enterprising. The principles are based on the premise that an organization's leaders are the caretakers of the culture.
The hands on learning experience gives students the opportunity to see ethics in action and in a positive light as opposed to the negative examples they often hear about in the classroom. An independent panel of judges consisting of past award winners, BBB board memebers and other respected business professionals perform a thorough review of the student entries to determine the award finalists and winners.
