NEVADA, Iowa -- Burke Corp. has received a third-tier Master Achiever Pioneer Star (MAPS) Award from the American Meat Institute (AMI) for implementing and maintaining an Environmental Management System (EMS), the company has announced.

Each year, AMI recognizes organizations dedicated to lowering their environmental impact. The MAPS Award Program honors companies across various steps in EMS development. Burke was once again honored at the third tier, Pioneer, for adopting numerous AMI policies, monitoring environmental impact and setting objectives for environmental practices. 

"It's important that we're recognized not only for food safety, customer service and employee safety, but also for being environmentally friendly," said Dave Weber, senior vice president of Burke. 

To earn the MAPS award, Burke has been dedicated to meeting the AMI standards and lowering the environmental impact of their facilities. 

Weber also acknowledged James Stevens, environmental/wastewater supervisor, and his team for their work that led to the recognition. "They have worked hard to develop, implement and maintain our EMS and in turn, make the company more environmentally friendly," he said.
