Axalta Coating Systems received the Ducks Unlimited (DU) Corporate Conservation Achievement Award in May at DU’s 82nd annual national convention in Hawaii.

The award was accepted by Robert Bryant, Axalta’s chief executive officer, and recognizes corporations from the United States, Canada or Mexico that have made contributions to wetlands conservation and environmental stewardship.

Bryant says Axalta has educated hundreds of students and teachers from Latin America through the Ducks Unlimited de Mexico’s Reserva Program, and provided 500 dry toilets to more than 1,600 people in Mexico. Axalta helped DU host nearly 200 college students from North America for Third Term 2018, Ducks University’s leadership summit, which is an annual leadership program for college students to learn about conservation, leadership skills and fundraising techniques at Ducks Unlimited’s national headquarters in Memphis.

Axalta and Ducks Unlimited announced a multiyear partnership in 2015. This year, Axalta will underwrite 100% of Third Term 2019.
