The Manufacturing Buzz on Earth Day Initiatives
Earth Day has emerged as a buzzword for the manufacturing industry.
The industry at large is becoming a proud participant in a global sustainability initiative. Local businesses sponsor community drives, and if/when capable, worldwide efforts to exhibit green commitments and spread the word.
The true essence of Earth Day is not in one-off measures or arbitrary celebrations. It is in making conservation and environmental consciousness a habit and the mainstay of everyday operations.
At MPS Industries, we build a culture around Code Green – a body of standards and practices that lets us manage our environmental responsibilities.
The History of Earth Day
Earth Day has become a massive movement with a lot of organic momentum. Every April 22nd activists and organizations in the US (and the world) dedicate time to drive home the truth about sustainability and our planet.
In recent years, there have been breakthroughs in fields like waste management and clean energy, showing the public how we can all make a difference in our environment.
Businesses in manufacturing accord it the same respect as Manufacturing Day. It is an opportunity to talk about the eco-friendly steps that the sector has taken and to cement a unique proposition for the future.
MPS Lives Earth Day, Every Day
MPS lives every day like Earth Day.
We have made eco-consciousness a non-negotiable part of our core values.
While we respect processes and the efficiency that manufacturing best practices offer, we are equally focused on the cost of our growth in regards to environmental impact.
Join us in making a conscious environmental effort by certifying for the ISO standard below.
ISO 14001 Environmental Code
At MPS, we have secured the ISO 14001 environmental code certification. We comply with stringent requirements like audits, communications, labeling, and life cycle analysis which allow us to measure the impact of our work on factors like climate change, then successfully minimize the impact.
We work with some of the most “green” sectors in the market right now including Electric & Hybrid vehicles. The shift imbues our business model – from procurement to shipping – with commitment to the well-being of the environment.
