Sustainability & LEED

THE TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE OF SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

As a company, we are committed to sustainable design, aligning our projects with the principles of The ‘Triple Bottom Line’:  Economic prosperity for our clients and the communities in which they operate, environmental stewardship and social responsibility towards present and future generations.


ENERGY EFFICIENCY INITIATIVES HELP PLANTS CONSUME LESS RESOURCES & SAVE MONEY

Food and beverage processing is inherently energy and water intensive; therefore, our efforts are strongly aimed at improving the efficiency and sustainability of the production and packaging processes in all our facilities.

Often times, energy saving initiatives can have a short payback period and may be eligible for incentives and rebates, which further help defray the cost.

 

Common Areas That Present Opportunities for Efficiency:

  • Pump & motor sizing and control
  • Compressed air
  • Boiler efficiency
  • Heat loss
  • Process & packaging waste
  • Wastewater
