It’s not unknown that today’s industries are adopting environmentally sustainable policies to protect the earth and help slow down climate change. From farming to manufacturing, global shipping, and more, all are pushing to improve their carbon footprint by implementing new initiatives requiring broad strokes for updating company-wide department levels with sustainable practices. These practices include how a business performs through its communication lines, equipment, and technology which affects worker efficiency and productivity. Many manufacturing companies here in Western North Carolina are falling suit with these new sustainable production models.
Vistanet's connective business services and telecom technology greatly help to improve communication which directly influences customer service and satisfaction and improves worker productivity and efficiency in manufacturing companies of all sizes.
How are Manufacturing Companies Making the Shift to Greener Policies?
Specifically? Manufacturing companies are implementing greener policies. Here’s how:
Recycling paper, glass, and plastic produces less worker waste and production waste, cardboard,
Installing Solar panels
More worker community involvement such as environmental cleanup and humanitarian initiatives, education
Expanding supply chain partners to include companies with like-minded sustainability goals,
Lowering emissions through electric fleet vehicles and charging stations for employees
Including green-certified and eco-friendly office products in daily activities,
Ensuring that materials are responsibly sourced
Partnering with universities and community groups to develop robust sustainability programs for our clients and employees
Supporting outside companies who are also dedicated to environmental protection, for example, telecommunications
Finding new and innovative ways to reduce waste and consumption of natural resources throughout the company’s locations
Take The GEL Group based out of Charleston, for example, this group is making huge efforts in assisting and guiding manufacturing-specific companies to implement these new practices for a greener world using their suggested methods and practices from above.
