Rubbermaid Commercial Products Recognized for Sustainability by Grainger

Partners in Performance awards celebrate suppliers who exceed company performance expectations

HUNTERSVILLE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / July 14, 2023 / Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP), the leader in innovative, solutions-based commercial products and part of the Newell Brands global portfolio of brands, announced today it has been awarded Grainger's 2022 Partners in Performance Award for their work in sustainability.

This award is based on sustainable solution performance, how the solution helps customers reach their sustainability goals, and stewardship as a responsible business. RCP has embedded sustainability into its strategy and operations by focusing on reducing waste through initiatives such as partnering with Grainger on conducting customer waste audits, improving compliance with state and federal recycling mandates as well as with corporate waste reduction goals, and offering more sustainable green product solutions.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by Grainger for such an important award," said Rob Posthauer, SVP and GM of Newell Brands' Commercial Business. "Sustainability remains a critical focus for our Rubbermaid Commercial business as well as Newell. We are committed to providing high-quality products that stand the test of time, making responsible material choices for our products, and providing options for our customers and end-users that facilitate responsible waste management."

Grainger suppliers receive ratings throughout the year on their performance in each category. Out of Grainger's more than 3,500 High-Touch Solutions suppliers, fewer than 1 percent are chosen to receive these awards.

"Grainger is proud to recognize Rubbermaid Commercial Products among a select group of suppliers who add value for the customers and communities we are privileged to serve," said Matt Fortin, Group Vice President, Merchandising and Supplier Management. "Partnership is key to our success, and we want to thank RCP for their exceptional support of our customers."
