Climate Smart

In 2013 we joined the Climate Smart program and in our first year we were able to reduce our carbon footprint by 11%. The Climate Smart program works with small to medium sized businesses to measure their GHG inventory. Climate Smart then mentor GHG reduction strategies that save costs and save the environment.  We have set a comprehensive GHG reduction strategy for 2015 are we are dedicated to reducing our emissions by cutting down on paper use, conserving electricity, reducing natural gas use, evaluating business travel and shipping, and cutting waste. We have set some ambitious reduction targets for our paper use, Territory Manager mileage and electricity use. Below are just a few of our priorities:

  • Minimize Waste: We have a recycling and composting program and an environmentally responsible approach to minimizing impacts associated with office supplies, e-waste, furnishings and equipment.
  • Reduce Energy: We are continually striving to improve our energy efficiency and move to renewables. 
  • Responsible Transportation: We promote the reduction of climate impacts associated with the transportation of people and documents/materials. 
  • Manufacturing Ethically and Resource Efficiency: We minimize scrap materials to reduce environmental impact and monitor our offshore partners for ethical practice.
  • Organizational Social Climate: We pride ourselves in providing a respectful and productive workplace with a healthy work/life balance. A key focus is company-wide employee engagement.
