A&P recognized for environmental stewardship

Montvale, N.J. A&P has been awarded the Environmental Stewardship Program of the Year at the 6th Annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business held in New York City, according to a report by Supermarket News.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is an international competition in 54 categories recognizing the accomplishments of outstanding women executives, business owners, and the organizations they run.

A&P's sustainability team, led by Jennifer MacLeod, senior VP, marketing & communications, examined every facet of the business in 2008 and 2009 to improve A&P's environmental efforts, capturing current practices, researching industry trends, meeting with sustainability experts, and developing programs to help preserve the environment, and conserve natural resources, said Nicole Amato, a spokeswoman for the Stevie Awards.

This effort resulted in "strategies to integrate and streamline the practices across their supermarket banners: A&P, Food Basics, SuperFresh, Pathmark, The Food Emporium and Waldbaum's," she said.
