As stated in our company creed, a founding principle of Robins & Morton’s culture is to respect the rights and property of others; this includes protecting and regenerating our environment. To manage this responsibility, in 2009, our company organized a group of twelve employees, from diverse departments and with assorted opinions andgoals, to create a sustainability-focused leadership group; our Sustainability Council. Over the last few years, the council has grown our company’s knowledge of sustainability and green achievements through implementation of influential initiatives and continually improved efficiency of our operational procedures.
An early achievement was the development of our Environment, Community, Opportunity (ECO) Initiative. This initiative commits our company to protecting the environment, reinforcing our company culture by regenerating our communities, and creating more opportunities for our clients and associates to educate about sustainability. This initiative is now integrated into our company culture, business decisions, and business partners.
To ensure our company is not only building green but also operating efficiently, Robins & Morton employees have committed to a series of sustainable activities that minimize energy and water consumption, improve indoor air quality and outdoor environment, encourage human health, and utilize responsible products and materials. Some efforts include establishing recycling programs at all offices (diverting glass, cardboard, paper, plastic, aluminum, batteries, toner cartridges from landfills), using the company intranet for electronic documentation and file sharing, increasing the use of telecommunication to limit travel andtransportation impacts, effectively using resources (repurposing and reuse before purchase), sustainably sourcing product and equipment (Energy Star equipment, products with recycled content, non-toxic materials, and encouraging use of green cleaning products), providing incentives for carpooling at our corporate office, holding yearly Earth Day Competitions to reinforce employee understanding, and by providing and participating in our exceptional employee wellness and benefits program. Though their actions, every employee at Robins & Morton has made a commitment to protect the environment, our communities, and future generations.
