Conoco Chairman and CEO Archie Dunham was awarded The Keystone Center's 2000 Leadership in Industry Award for his leadership through consensus building and creative problem solving.
"I am very pleased Conoco's efforts have been recognized by such a prestigious organization and I am honored to accept the award," Dunham said. "The center's acknowledgement is an inspiration for us to do even more."
In accepting the Leadership in Industry Award, Dunham highlighted Conoco's first annual Sustainable Growth Report, issued last month. The document was developed to foster open dialogue with Conoco stakeholders by providing an account of the way the company conducts its business while maintaining respect for environmental and social considerations.
The award was presented in Washington by William Reilly, president and CEO of Aqua International Partners and chairman of the board of the World Wildlife Fund.
Conoco owns and operates more than 150 Food Mart and breakplace convenience stores in six states and maintains a network of more than 3,000 branded units. The Keystone Center is a nonprofit educational organization that seeks to bring together people from business and industry, environmental organizations and government to address pressing questions, encourage scientific inquiry and enhance understanding to develop consensus on controversial public policy issues.
Other award winners were Rep. Henry Waxman, Calif.; Patrick Noonan, founder and chairman of the board of The Conservation Fund; Helge Wehmeier, president and CEO of Bayer Corporation, USA; and Edward Gabriel, ambassador to Morocco.
