Associated Bag Company is committed to minimizing the
environmental impact of its business practices and the products and services
that it supplies. We take an active role in promoting environmentally friendly
practices internally, as well as with our suppliers and customers. Ensuring a
healthy environment needs to be a community effort.
At Associated Bag Company, we have systems in place that
address minimizing environmental impact, which include, but are not limited to,
high-efficiency lighting, recycling programs, and researching and developing
environmentally friendly products.
We ensure the responsible use of energy throughout our
business, including conserving energy and improving energy efficiency. We seek
to address the impact on natural resources through the adoption of a sustainable
procurement policy. Associated Bag Company will conserve resources through
efficient use and careful planning.
An active recycling program is in place at all our
distribution centers. Where feasible, we look to reduce, reuse, or recycle, and
encourage our suppliers and customers to do the same.
Associated Bag Company observes environmental laws and
regulations in an effort to prevent and/or reduce pollution. We have a hazardous
waste management system in place to minimize waste, and whenever possible, reuse
or recycle materials. We look to minimize, substitute, and eliminate the use of
hazardous chemicals in processes and operations. We will dispose of all waste
through safe and responsible methods.
We are constantly in search of environmentally friendly
products. We acknowledge concerns of how packaging materials and shipping
supplies may adversely affect the environment and the need to find solutions
such as recycled products, compostable products, and ways to reduce, reuse,
and recycle products. We realize the need to develop products that consider the
environmental impact from design through manufacturing to disposal.
