Description: The article mentions green employee. Many employees feel it is important for the company to be environmentally conscious. We can know the reasons why they want to do something related to environmental protection and something done to make contributions to the green development.
I’m out of what this company is doing and tell you that our green efforts are motivated by two things, one is the desire to do the right thing and behave in a way that’s consistent with what our employees want, we talked with a lot of employees and they felt it was important for the company to be environmentally conscious.
So we took that to heart, as we did our research, we saw there were a lot of great arguments for being green, but there aren’t any arguments to be green, so it’s common sense, so solar was something we could do, so we try to do that in a big way.
We now have 400 panels on our buildings and produce a lot of our power, that way was the first company and master is to put in electric charging stations, that’s to motivate people to buy an electric car.
I have an electric car, so I have a Chevy Volt and I wouldn’t charge employees, for it’s not that expensive, we hope that we can do more to it, if it turns out that we need to put more electric charging stations, we’ll do it, we’re not greenwashing, we don’t only do those things that make us money, we do the right thing.
Every now and then, it works financially, when we got here, we weren’t recycling anything and you can imagine the amount of glass, plastic and aluminum that prepare food for this number of people.
Every day, they can produce, we recycle every bit of that and now we are also composting all of our pre-consumer waste with a free coffee program instead of providing disposable coffee cups.
The company opted to provide each employee with their own coffee cup, we are now couplets in the cafe, we’re very proud of that and it worked very well, we decided to pursue certification with the Green Restaurant Association which is a national nonprofit organization.
They provide guidance and help us achieve a three-star certification and our goal is to become even greener, as we go along with their health, the green team was an opportunity for us to get ideas from employees all over the company.
Some of the earliest initiatives were suggestions from employees and a lot of little simple suggestions, the green zone has been a publicity campaign which has been used.
For example, in kitchenettes, as people are thinking about whether to use disposables or to reuse cups, plates, silverware, very simple reminders to folks throughout the company webscoe publishing offers a commuter rail reimbursement benefit that has been a great win-win, because it’s great for the company and our environmental initiatives great for reducing our need for parking.
One of the best commuter reimbursement programs that I know of in this area as a large company, we believe it’s part of our duty to promote our environment and this is all that we can do to help to protect them, to save it and to nurture it.
The great thing about that is in acting from a company perspective, we start to see employees and our local communities take that ball and run with it in terms of being able to say what I can do.
One of the things that we have done is to provide green bag, we’ve given away tens of thousands of these, it’s great to see these bags available used in the community, we also provide a free resource to libraries, we call green file to help patrons gain a better understanding of their environment and their impact on their life.
If you’re a sizable company, you can afford to be a little less profitable and do the right thing, that’s the way I look at it, there’s an element of environmental responsibility that I think we have to adhere to.
We can influence people’s behavior, I think if people see a big company doing it, they realize this company’s totally capable company, they’ve been successful, if I make the decisions, they did that, I should look into that, we also have solar hot water panels, because he swims around and goes back.
