Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Performance Matters Newsletter: Electronic Publication

Instead of our printed newsletter, we are providing our Performance Matters Newsletter electronically. Look for our first publication in Q1 2010!

Reducing Our Electrical Footprint by 20%

We have recently implemented efforts to reduce our overall kilowatt-hours used by:

  • Unplugging idle machines
  • Installing compact florescent and LED light bulbs
  • Using smarter switches
  • Leveraging Smart Strip Power Strips to eliminate phantom energy usage of our electronic devices

Reducing Our Paper Footprint by 10%

We in the United States use about 663 pounds of paper annually, according to the most recent figures available. If everyone in the U.S. reduced his/her use of paper by 10% of the current levels, the savings would be a little more than 10 million tons of paper each year. Our efforts include:

  • Think twice before we print
  • Setting the print default to print on both sides
  • Buy copy/printing paper and envelopes with at least 30% post-consumer recycled content
  • Offer electronic publication of reports and findings to our clients
  • Implement electronic storage of files
