- Gold (Polymers and Emulsion category)—Delrin® renewable attributed acetal homopolymer, which enables sustainable design, high resource efficiency in converting, and a lower total carbon footprint
- Silver (Building Materials category)—Froth-Pak™ spray foam, which utilizes a blowing agent package that achieves a reduction in global warming potential (GWP) of over 99% compared to blowing agents used in past formulations
