Jehovah’s Witnesses Receive an Award for Protecting the Environment

The printing facilities operated by Jehovah’s Witnesses in Mexico received the Clean Enterprise certificate for the seventh year in a row.

On September 26, 2012, the government of Mexico awarded Jehovah’s Witnesses a special certificate of recognition “for [their] dedication to the care and protection of the environment.”

The Clean Enterprise program helps industries develop in ways that are safe for the environment. Jehovah’s Witnesses participate in it every year, though theirs is a not-for-profit organization. A spokesman for the Mexico printing facility said: “To receive the Clean Enterprise certificate, we have to give evidence that our procedures and emissions meet local environmental regulations in seven areas: air, water, urban waste, hazardous waste, safety, electrical energy, and environmental training. Industrial enterprises are not obligated to subscribe to this program. We participate voluntarily.”

Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world do all they can to avoid damaging earth’s precious environment.
