A Responsibility To Our Environment
Our company firmly believes that we all have a responsibility to our planet and the next generation. We are proud that our business is consistent with Reduce/Reuse/Recycle, and strive to continue to reduce our impact on the environment.
Keeping waste out of landfills
Getting more life from your current UPS allows you to protect your data without adding waste in our landfills. Rest assured that we responsibly recycle all used batteries and other harmful e-waste through our partnership with R2 downstream recyclers.
In our offices, we are very aware of the effect our everyday activities have on our environment. We optimize our use of technology and limit printing to lessen our footprint. All cardboard, paper, aluminum, plastic and glass is recycled through our waste management company, Republic Services.
In 2010, we invested $25,000 to install high-efficiency lighting throughout both our offices and factories. These lights are approximately five times more energy efficient than a standard light bulb, which greatly reduces the production of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. We also installed energy efficient appliances in our break room, and upgraded to an energy efficient water cooler.
Reducing our footprint outside of the workplace
Our employees are invested in both the company’s green initiatives and in reducing their own carbon footprint. Over half of our employees use public transportation, while most others own fuel-efficient vehicles.
