Being Green

With a commitment to sustainability
Being green is our way of doing business responsibly.

An essential part of our mission is to impact the environment positively. We seek to promote sustainable business practices through our energy conservation initiatives, waste reduction efforts, and a commitment to recycling. We gather the power of technology, our people, and our customers to better the environment and preserve our natural resources.

To promote our Green Initiative, we have implemented a number of progressive corporate programs aimed at preserving and protecting our environment. Specifically, we have focused our efforts in:
