Personalizing Green

Sustainability is a strong part of who we are, and it starts with "the green behind the red" icon - a symbol of our ongoing mission to impact less. In fact, the more you look behind the red, the more you'll find green in everything we do.

Sustainable Practices

We’ve made a comprehensive effort to incorporate sustainable practices and policies into our manufacturing responsibilities. We practice the following goals:

  • Eliminate solvent-based materials, replacing them with water-based or powder substitutes in all manufacturing facilities. This practice also reduces the need to use solvent-based cleaning materials.
  • Incorporate the largest percentage of recycled content into our products so that they can easily be recycled, disassembled and field repaired. We search for vendors and alternative materials that offer the largest recycled post-consumer and post-industrial content.
  • Reduce the use of packaging materials and find alternative methods to safely ship and receive products to and from suppliers, end users and other manufacturing locations. Using reusable plastic totes, shrink-wrapping, blanket wrapping, and racking products has helped alleviate the amount of "box" materials used in the shipping process.
  • Conserve fuel and energy. We select new processes and equipment based on a detailed analysis of environmental considerations, capital and operating costs. Energy and fuel conservation is an integral part of this process.

Many of our facilities participate in a Wisconsin state program called Focus on Energy, which formalizes energy conservation goals, measurements and approaches. As part of this program, the facilities use energy-efficient lighting systems for offices and manufacturing areas. Automatic shut-off systems further conserve energy. Fuel conservation is addressed in the transportation of both raw materials and finished products as well as facility operations.
