SCA, a global hygiene leader and forest products company that produces the Tork® brand of away-from-home (AfH) professional hygiene products, announces its corporate champion sponsorship with the Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE), the organization of choice for professionals responsible for caring for the patient and resident care environment across all care settings. The strengthening of this strategic relationship aims to focus on a key priority shared by both organizations: sustainability.
As a 2016 corporate champion, SCA will play a stronger role in helping AHE achieve its strategic mission and vision. SCA will sponsor key initiatives of AHE, including the Environmental Service Department of the Year Award, the Environmental Sustainability Certificate Program and Tool Kit, all designed to recognize outstanding sustainability efforts of healthcare facilities and provide guidance for conducting exemplary environmentally sustainable healthcare operations. With sustainability as the backbone of SCA, the organizations will work together to support successful sustainability endeavors.
"It is an honor to join forces with AHE to build upon its outstanding achievements in healthcare environmental services," says Tom Bergin, marketing director for AfH Professional Hygiene business at SCA North America. "We are proud to work together in an effort to advocate for environmental sustainability and further leverage initiatives dedicated toward promoting best practices and education in environmental hygiene, and even more specific issues such as hand hygiene compliance."
SCA remains a sustainability leader by delivering solutions backed by safe, resource-efficient and environmentally sound sourcing, production and development. Through its Tork® brand of Away-from-Home (AfH) professional hygiene products, the company has acquired significant knowledge thanks to its long-standing commitment toward helping healthcare facilities work smarter and supporting them through day-to-day critical moments.
