As a core aspect of our ethos, INGUARD strives to practice conscious environmentalism on a daily basis and to limit the carbon footprint we leave behind. That isn’t just something we say: it is a value that we live up to in our everyday business practices.
Today’s world is so greatly impacted by globalization that the choices we make can very literally have an impact everywhere, and we choose to do everything in our power to make sure that the impact we have is a positive one.
Our dedication to environmentalism can be showcased through the following eco-friendly, volunteer-driven initiatives:
In 2014, the INGUARD headquarters underwent a zero-waste remodel to create a business environment that supports eco-friendly initiatives and increases energy efficiency. These changes have been structured into our business model, and they have an effect on many aspects of our day-to-day operations.
To significantly reduce our carbon footprint, we created a paperless workplace; installed energy-efficient motion sensor lighting; and installed eco-friendly thermostats. In addition, we have limited the number of trashcans in our office, removed all printers and front-end scanners, and encouraged our employees to recycle when possible.
Furthermore, we are continuing to seek out ways to move even closer to our goal of becoming a zero-waste business. You can help us help others “go green” and create a more eco-friendly environment by contacting INGUARD today to share your ideas regarding how we can help better preserve our environment for generations to come; we are always looking for opportunities to become better stewards of the planet.
At INGUARD, we are strong supporters of Tesla Motors and encourage our employees to embrace the use of gasless cars. Gasless cars do not only reduce the levels of toxic emissions being released into the ecosystem; their use also minimizes the demand for the world’s all-too-limited fossil fuels, not to mention the environmental cost of extracting, refining, and transporting them.
To support the decision to decrease air pollution, we house a charging station at our office that can be used by anyone free of charge 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
With the help of the Arbor Day Foundation, INGUARD donated 10,000 trees in April of 2014 in honor of the 44th annual Earth Day celebration. Donations were made to help encourage others to plant and nurture trees and to become more environmentally conscious.
Planting trees is even more important than many people realize. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, trees help reduce energy usage year-round, provide a more thriving environment for birds and other species, reduce water pollution and global warming, and improve air quality. We are proud of our support of the Arbor Day Foundation, and look forward to continuing it into the future.
