What is Green Thread?
Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We help our employees and customers minimize environmental impacts in our operations and in our communities.
We place special emphasis on responsible sourcing, waste minimization, efficient operations, and transportation management. But we dont stop there. We measure our impact and hold ourselves accountable to continuously improve.
We purchase local, seasonal and responsibly raised, grown and sourced products whenever possible. We firmly believe responsible sourcing has a direct impact on our local and global economies, our health and wellness and the environment. With every purchase, we engage suppliers and partners in an effort to source environmentally and socially responsible products.
We minimize our waste by reducing, reusing and recycling. We minimize our footprint through our waste reduction efforts. Across our operations, we have established practices from initial purchase to final waste disposal that decrease the overall cost of waste both environmentally and financially.
We implement practices to conserve natural resources and ensure operational efficiencies. Fueled by the understanding that our day-to-day actions have an impact, we work closely with our clients to conserve energy and water.
We ensure our transportation programs reduce fuel usage and emissions. Transportation provides a vital circulation system that enables delivery of the highest quality product and service. With our vehicle fleet of thousands, its essential for us to minimize our use of fossil fuels and generation of emissions.
