We are ever mindful of our impact on the environment around us. We are focused on implementing changes — both big and small — that protect this most valuable resource. Our people actively participate in efforts to conserve our natural resources. We focus our environmental sustainability work in two key areas where we believe we can have the greatest positive impact – water conservation and energy efficiency.
The world is facing environmental challenges that need to be addressed in new, innovative ways. Clean water is today’s world’s most precious resource. There are nearly 2 million Americans without access to clean water. The number is quite stunning. We tend to take clean water for granted and how crucial it is to our lives. The United Nations designated March 22 as World Water Day to call attention to the fact that there are millions of people in the world who do not have access to a safe water supply near their home, which often leads to severe poverty. The LOGISTEC family is committed to finding creative solutions to the growing challenge of water scarcity.
We are also very excited about our new partnership with AquaHacking. Being an AquaHacking partner means working together to create active relationships that allow both organizations to achieve greater outcomes together. Partnerships extend our reach to bring sustainable access to safe water to communities in need. Learn more in the coming months (AquaHacking).
Every day, we make choices that have an impact on the environment. In order to reduce CO2 emissions across our facilities and sites, several energy conservation initiatives have been implemented. Our people will continue to work closely together to identify new technologies, improved operational efficiencies and alternative energy sources to drive further improvement.
We also engage our stakeholders in our day-to-day business activities, soliciting their input and feedback as we strive to learn from each other. As we continue to improve our environmental performance and reduce our operational environmental footprint, we are working to help our customers reduce their environmental footprint.
