Aleron takes its commitment to the future of our planet seriously. We understand that our business operations directly impact the sustainability of our ecological resources and, ultimately, the world that our children will inherit. Therefore, while—as a provider of workforce and business solutions—our ecological impact may be less than that of an organization within manufacturing or production industries. Every day we strive to refine the manner in which we reduce, reuse, and recycle. We are steadfastly committed to making thoughtful, informed decisions that benefit not only our operations, but also the environment. Thankfully, today’s technology allows us to simultaneously reduce our carbon footprint, minimize waste, and increase our efficiency.
At Aleron, we realize that we have a direct impact on the environment. In fact, the largest energy users operate in office buildings, which have a major impact on the lives of employees and the people in nearby communities. Office buildings account for 19% of all commercial energy consumption—more than any other type of commercial building. Heating, cooling, and energy for office spaces are responsible for almost 40% of the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions and more than 23% of total electricity usage in the building sector.
The demand for sustainability is reaching deep into the supply chain and affecting even the smallest businesses. Many of our clients have also embarked on initiatives to curb their greenhouse gas emissions and reduce their environmental footprints. We believe that our company must continually address its impact on climate change.
