Our Green Initiatives

It’s more important that ever to be doing the right thing! Our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint as a business is not only good for our business but great for our customers, our employees, our community and our environment.

What’s New?

We have become a plastic-water-bottle-free company over these past few years!  Despite our best efforts to recycle them we worried about the ones that got away from us and were bound for the landfills. No more plastic water bottles handed out on our vehicles and we are super excited about that.

We also are so excited about adding another two new Tesla’s to the fleet!  The electric vehicles movement is quickly changing transportation at its core and we are thrilled to be changing with it and allowing these positive changes to help shape us as a company. We currently have a total of five Tesla’s in the fleet with more on order and we’re constantly staying on top of research for larger vehicles with electric capabilities as we hope to increase our movement to our buses and larger vehicles.

What else are we doing to make a difference?

Here are some of our current efforts to help off-set the impact our business has on the environment.

  • Recycle our waste
  • Unplug policy for computers, appliances and lights in our office at night
  • Energy efficient lighting
  • Use 100% recycled office paper with a recycling program in place
  • Trying to be as paperless as possible by going electronic for clients and vendors where possible
  • Idle-free policy for our vehicles
  • Offer contractual shuttle options for companies to transport their employees to/from Skytrain stations to encourage Skytrain use and lessen the number of personal vehicles on the roads.
  • Regular maintenance on all vehicles to ensure less harmful gas emissions
  • Speed control training and specific driver training to help reduce emissions

What are we working to implement for our business?

  • Eco-friendly cleaning products whenever possible
  • Additional hybrid and electric options for future vehicle purchases
  • Initiatives for more team building and awareness for our employees
  • Goals to maintain our support for our regular local charities that share in the same green goals for change
  • To continue to build on our knowledge of environmental impact and creative ways to make positive change

The deeper we dig on this topic and the more we learn only deepens our commitment, and keeping track of our progress opens up even more future opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle. It doesn’t all happen overnight but growing knowledge, accountability, and effort are all great steps in the journey toward progress.
