John Deere recognized for supporting green industry

Posted by Green Fun Store on 11/1/2010 to Current News/Events of John Deere
Green is a prominent color in the John Deere logo, and the company was recently honored for its efforts in supporting the grounds-keeping industry.

The company received the Professional Grounds Management Society's 2010 Gold Medal, which is awarded to organizations or individuals that have shown a long-standing commitment to the green industry.

First given in 1926, the Gold Medal was made an annual award in 2004. Along with supporting PGMS, John Deere received the honor for a number of its programs, including landscape sustainability.

Ken Taylor, John Deere Corporate Business Division general manager, said the company was honored to get the award.

"At John Deere we are very passionate about the work we do to support the green industry, and we would like to thank PGMS for recognizing our efforts with this award," Taylor said.

Landscape sustainability can also affect farm life, as the U.S. Department of Agriculture works to help conservation efforts across the country. Some producers may choose to have their land rented by the government and converted from growing crops.
