T-Care Awards
Eastman’s most recent acquisition of Taminco brought a deeply ingrained employee engagement effort to Eastman called the T-Care Awards. Annually, Taminco provided an opportunity for employees to nominate projects in three award categories: Sustainable Innovation, People and Society, and Responsible Care. With the 2014 awards program underway at the time of acquisition, Eastman’s Sustainability Council supported the completion of the awards. Through employee voting as well as review and voting by members of the Sustainability Council, nominations were narrowed to five finalists for each category. The winners were announced at a ceremony earlier this year in Belgium. Members of Eastman’s management, including our Chief Sustainability Officer Godefroy Motte, were on hand to present the awards. The winning projects included:
  • Sustainable Innovation: Tenaz for the Latin American market
  • People and Society: “Rebuilding lives and the community”—a philanthropic project by Taminco employees in the Philippines following Typhoon Hayian
  • Responsible Care: Educating customers around the importance of safety and product handling for methylamines

Additionally, Mr. Motte recognized the St. Gabriel site manager and his team with the Best Safety Performance award. This marks the second consecutive honor for the St. Gabriel team as they continue their emphasis on safety as part of the company culture. As we move forward with integration of Taminco, we will determine how programs such as the T-Care Awards will be implemented in the combined company.
