IMPROVING OUR ENVIRONMENT
Go-Glass goes Green. After all, it is our color… but it’s not just our color.
In 2008, Go-Glass launched its “Go Green” initiative in which we began developing an energy and environmental platform that we hope will effectively serve our communities, customers and company.
To this end, we realize that “going green” is a never-ending process, not an event. Our belief is that we can do well by doing good and that our “green platform” will be integral to our business operations and not merely a tacked on initiative.
Our organization has identified three precepts for going “green”.
Everyday actions that support these precepts:
We have also identified specific areas of opportunity where the application of the precepts and everyday actions can be identified and monitored.
Areas of opportunity are as follows:
Our car/truck fleet – improving our routing and scheduling process to reduce the number and frequency of trips without compromising service – update and right size fleet.
Our facilities – installing programmable thermostats, recycling aluminum and paper waste and unplugging low-use equipment. Replacing old, obsolete HVAC equipment with high efficiency units. Eliminating incandescent light bulbs where practical.
Our supply chain – improving our order and delivery process to reduce the number and frequency of deliveries.
On November 8th, 2014, the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Salisbury University and both Salisbury and Wicomico County Public Works, hosted an “ on the water river paddle clean up,” in Salisbury on the Wicomico River, which runs through the heart of downtown.
Volunteers from Go-Glass were among the participants.
The riverbank beautification adds to the “comeback” of the river, as the City of Salisbury has upgraded its wastewater treatment plant and improved storm water management practices in recent months and years.
