Record Amount Raised at NSC's Green Cross Dinner

At the annual fundraising dinner in Houston, Exxon Mobil Corporation CEO Rex Tillerson accepted the Green Cross for Safety medal.

The National Safety Council announced that its annual fundraising dinner in Houston, at which Exxon Mobil Corporation CEO Rex Tillerson accepted the Green Cross for Safety medal, raised nearly $2.1 million, a record amount. The medal is presented annually to a company for its leadership and commitment to safety excellence.

"It is an honor to receive this medal on behalf of the men and women of ExxonMobil," said Tillerson, ExxonMobil's chairman and chief executive officer. "We hold this award in high esteem because it recognizes the deep commitment of our company and our people to a culture of safety."

The council's chairman of the board of directors, Kent McElhattan, and Janet Froetscher, NSC president and CEO, presented the medal to Tillerson. "It is evident that ExxonMobil is committed to excellence in safety, security, health, and environmental performance," Froetscher said. "The council is honored to recognize ExxonMobil with the Green Cross for Safety medal. This organization is a wonderful example of the role corporations can play in preventing injuries and saving lives."

The fundraising dinner supports the council's mission to save an additional 10,000 lives and prevent 1 million injuries by 2014, and sponsors of the dinner provide the contributions totaling nearly $2.1 million, according to NSC.

Past recipients of the Green Cross for Safety medal include the Dow Chemical Company, Schneider Electric North America, Exelon Nuclear, FirstGroup, Delta Air Lines, UPS, DuPont, Liberty Mutual Group, Chrysler Group of DaimlerChrysler, Kenny Construction Company, Ryder System Inc., Intel Corporation, and AK Steel.
