Crop Production Services (CPS) from Glenboro, Manitoba, was honored for their innovative approach and dedication to environmental stewardship this year when they were named one of the four regional winners in the North America category of the Environmental Respect Awards (ERA), writes Laura Wiens on the Canadian Association of Agri-Retailers website.
“I was surprised to hear we won, very surprised,” says Darrell Godard, branch manager at CPS Glenboro. “We’re just a small site; there are much bigger sites than us out there. We’re a small staff but we’re a good staff, and I’m proud of what we achieved.”
Now in its 27th year, the ERAs recognize fertilizer or ag chemical retailers from around the globe who preserve and protect the environment by incorporating environmentally sound and safe practices into their business model for the benefit of their customers, employees and communities. Judges selected four regional winners in the North America category, with CPS locations sweeping three of the four regional awards.
