Sustainable Business Practices
They have formed a Corporate Environmental Committee to help the company reach its environmental goals by utilizing ISO 14001 Environmental certification. In 2003, Unibar Services Inc. was awarded the ISO 14001 Environmental designation as a result of its Corporate Recycling Program and conversion of cleaning chemicals to Green chemicals at the facility. Through this program paper, cardboard, and batteries are being recycled. In addition to this recycling program, the company practices many waste reduction and reuse techniques. Double-sided printing, paperless invoicing, e-mail, and electronic or web based documents help them reduce their reliance on paper. A number of other items are reused at the facility, helping them to reduce the amount of waste requiring disposal. Not only are new employees apprised of the program and current employees reminded of the program, but employees are also rewarded for their participation in the program; proceeds from their waste reduction and recycling efforts are contributed to an employee fund. Olameter also works with the community on varies projects such as MAP which helps various veteran facilities by cleaning, planting and upgrading residential facilities that house veterans in need of assistance. We also work with each and every customer in their local community projects
