PDC Launches New Initiatives Focused on the Environment
PDC makes commitment to go “green” by announcing new company initiatives, formation of “The Green Team” and an informative environmental website section.
San Fernando, CA - (March 24, 2008) - The dynamics of global conditions continue to change at a rapid pace. The increasing daily demands on natural resources further fuel the importance of corporations to focus on recycling, purchasing, car pooling, and setting a positive example of environmental responsibility. “Going green” is more than catch phrase; it is rapidly becoming a vital business strategy. Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), the global leader in wristband identification, is demonstrating its commitment to the environment by actively seeking out opportunities to secure a sustainable and minimal-impact business setting.
With the launch of PDC’s “Thinking About Tomorrow, Today company-wide environmental initiatives, the company has begun taking systematic and comprehensive approaches to minimize environmental impact. PDC is examining its business operations from product packaging and consumables to procurement and energy consumption to implement new, environmentally sound business practices and procedures with attention to education, innovation, and continuous improvement.
"PDC’s focus on environmentally-friendly projects is the key to successfully making a difference," said President and CEO Gary Hutchinson. “Our concerns about environmental safety, its effects on the community, and employees’ well-being have always been a daily part of our company’s mission.”
Centering on its commitment to reducing these vital environmental business impact areas, PDC has created The Green Team which has developed an aggressive ’08 strategy. The Team’s plan is to demonstrate the benefits of reduced costs, increased productivity, efficiency and heightened employee morale. Already, the team has hit the ground running by hosting an E-Waste recycling event for employees; expanding upon company-wide recycling programs; transitioning to recycled paper for all printers and copiers, as well as high volume catalogs; introducing a new preferred parking program for hybrid vehicles; and highlighting PDC’s incentive based carpooling program. Highlights of PDC’s The Green Team efforts are featured on its new website section at www.pdcorp.com/environment.
Chris Stetson, Web Developer and Green Team founder says, “Being green is simply good business. The world is in a state of climatic change, and it is critical that businesses accept their responsibility as leaders and innovators by becoming actively involved in the protection of the world in which we operate.”
