Excellence and Performance are the key to success. However, in our view success is not complete and long-lasting without an outstanding contribution to prosperity and cultural understanding. Our CEO Mr André Schneider was honoured in 2001 with the Gold Medal of Excellence by the World Win Foundation (USA) presided by Mrs Wilda Spalding (of the world-famous Spalding Industries , established 1876 in Boston, Mass.), in presence of a large audience (State Authorities of Geneva, Mayor of City of Geneva, Director General of United Nations, Ambassador of United States, Media) in the celebrated Victoria Hall , Geneva (Switzerland).
Such Honors have been awarded annually to only a few world-class personalities, including a limited number of Nobel Prize Winners. They are linked to the application and promotion of Human Values which are shared by the Charter of the United Nations. This Award was attributed to honour our Outstanding Contribution to Prosperity, Peace & Cultural Understanding. Sidéco S.A. is proud of this exceptional distinction of international recognition, making our company stand out as a symbol. Beyond our business activities, we extend the symbol of this Award also to our ecological, social and humanitarian contributions through several Non-Profit Organisations, such as EcoPro and the EcoPro Foundation, amongst several others.
