Energy and Water Conservation
Our operations depend on safe and reliable energy and water
inputs. Nearly all of the energy we consume is supplied by finite
natural resources, the generation of which contributes to climate change
and affects the environmental quality of the communities we serve. We
advocate for and partner with our clients to bring a range of energy and
water conservation programs to the places we operate.
We rely on a service fleet, as well as other transportation
sources, to deliver products and services to many customer locations. We
recognize that reducing fuel use and emissions will have a substantial
impact on the environment. We partner with our suppliers, vehicle
manufacturers, clients, and governmental organizations to improve
operational efficiency and explore new technologies.
The responsible management of emissions and waste are
requirements to sustain and restore our natural resources and the
communities in which we serve. We are committed to minimizing our
environmental footprint by promoting and practicing waste reduction,
reuse, and recycling in our operations and those of our clients.
