The Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) annually recognizes achievements in corporate conservation across various industry sectors. The 2023 Corporate Conservation Leadership Award was awarded to Freeport-McMoRan. This top award honors one company’s overall achievement in conservation efforts and reflects an exemplary level of corporate commitment to environmental efforts.
“Responsible management of wildlife and their habitats are part of the company’s focus on responsible production while also allowing us to be a positive force in the communities where we operate,” said Bill Cobb, Freeport-McMoRan Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer. “I’m very pleased that the WHC, with these prestigious awards, has recognized the hard work and dedication of Freeport’s employees at our numerous certified sites. That work has clearly resulted in significant accomplishments in environmental stewardship and protection of wildlife, as well as local STEM education.”
