In 2018, the West Georgia Regional Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) presented Pilgrim’s Carrollton production facility with the Sixth Annual LEPC Environmental Excellence Award in recognition of the facility’s civic and corporate environmental leadership rooted in performance and action.
Acting as liaison between industry and emergency response, the West Georgia Regional LEPC works to evaluate the dependability and trustworthiness of local environmental programs. In light of that mission, the LEPC Environmental Excellence Award was created to identify and commend member groups and companies within the community who have gone above and beyond the mere requirements of the statutes, and by doing so, have made the community a better place to live.
“They are truly a valuable member of the West Georgia Family and a respected partner in our environmental improvement efforts. To further define this level of devotion and support, [Pilgrim’s] is a longtime member and ardent supporter of the West Georgia Regional LEPC”.
