PINC IS THE NEW GREEN
We’re well into our sustainable transformation here at Perennial, having embarked on a focused push to "green" our operations over the past several years. Early efforts to curb energy usage, track and manage utility levels, and minimize waste disposal have been hugely successful. Last year, we undertook several initiatives of significance, culminating in the company winning the Partners in Project Green Leadership in Sustainability award for the office sector.
Whether it’s in-house or outside, we’re always looking for new ways to introduce more environmental practices. Like converting the office-wide printing process to manual prompts, for example. Or landscaping our outdoor areas to create a native plant garden and seating space. Or the launch of a lunch program that reduced daytime vehicle traffic from the office. The future holds great promise for the continued creation of internal sustainability programs. THERE’S MORE IN STORE
As we look to expand on our recent success at integrating sustainability into our operations, we’ve set ourselves the overall challenge of making a noted reduction in the footprint of our business, year-upon-year. We’re also looking to establish an example that inspires our peers, clients, and competitors to follow suit.
In particular, we’re going to be focusing on reducing the amount of vehicle traffic to and from Perennial, cutting back the waste stream at the office, and rethinking our attitudes to paper usage for the better. These are all long-term initiatives that will see their start in the coming year, with our goals increasing annually and ultimate targets being reached within a 3 – 5 year period.
