Third-party groups highlight NBB successes with industry awards

By The National Biodiesel Board | January 19, 2016

The National Biodiesel Board was honored by a number of third-party organizations in 2015 for successful efforts and achievements in advancing the biodiesel industry. Honors came from regional and national organizations, and recognized staff members, marketing efforts and the organization as a whole.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by other distinguished organizations for our industry’s efforts,” said NBB CEO Joe Jobe. “But maybe more importantly, it is verification that we are focused in the right areas and what we do to move the industry forward is successful and relevant.”

2015 honors included:

The United Soybean Board’s 'Excellence in Oil' award
This is one of the highest awards given annually by the national soybean checkoff organization to an individual or organization that has been instrumental in developing major new opportunities for U.S. soybeans greatly impacting the profit potential for all U.S. soybean farmers.

The 'Initiative of the Year' award from the Greater Washington Region Clean Cities Coalition
The coalition is part of the U.S. DOE Clean Cities program. Anne Steckel, NBB vice president of federal affairs, was presented with the award for her work to advance the renewable fuel standard. The award recognizes an alternative fuels team leader who played a key role in closing a significant and complex alternative fuels challenge during the past year.

The 'Outstanding Achievement Award' from the Ohio Soybean Council
The state organization annually recognizes one person or organization that has significantly contributed to the goals of the soybean checkoff. NBB was chosen because of the new opportunities created for Ohio soybean farmers through industry growth from approximately 200,000 gallons in 1999 to almost 2 billion gallons in 2015.

Honorable mention award from the min’s Integrated Marketing Awards
NBB’s national advertising campaign “Coast-to-Coast” received honorable mention in the Print/TV or Radio Bundle category as top media and marketing executives gathered in New York City to honor the work of their colleagues and peers, and share best practices and lessons learned in the marketing space.
