We are committed to environmental sustainability and recognize the importance of making responsible choices in our daily business practices. Thinking green is part of our corporate culture and we actively participate company-wide in a number of sustainable initiatives and partner with like-minded organizations to support our environment. Our green programs include participation in a carbon-offset program with the goal of up to 2% carbon emissions reduction annually.
We also invest in vehicle technologies, like bio-diesel engines, that enable optimal performance while reducing emissions and we regularly maintain our entire fleet to ensure both efficient equipment performance and travel times that also reduce emissions overall. We strive to reduce in-house waste via sustainable practices by using recyclable materials that are processed through recycling facilities wherever possible.
Additionally, we minimize paper usage via electronic transactions, including online reservations, electronic filing and accounting systems. We will continue to look for more opportunities to practice environmental responsibility in our daily lives to ensure a better planet for future generations.
