Six INVISTA sites have received an INVISTA EHS Perfect Year award for 2010, signifying their excellent environmental, health, and safety (EHS) performance that year.

The INVISTA EHS Perfect Year is a company metric and recognition program with criteria including zero recordable injuries, zero environmental agency reportable incidents, zero notices of violation and zero citizen complaints.

“I am very proud of these INVISTA sites,” said Walter Tyler, INVISTA's global director of environment, health and safety. “This achievement is a reflection of INVISTA employees' commitment to compliance and the protection of health, safety, and the environment, each and every day.”

These six sites received the INVISTA EHS Perfect Year award for 2010:
