At 21GCTT, green is more than just a color. Green Initiatives are at the forefront of our environmentally responsible office practices. We have implemented actions and will continue to look for opportunities to minimize our carbon footprint by reducing waste, conserving energy and encouraging recycling and the use of recycled and recyclable materials.
21GCTT's Green Initiatives:
Recycling and Reusing
The firm's electronic devices are disposed of and recycled in an environmentally responsible manner, and our leasing agents reuse office equipment whenever practicable. We also have long-standing and firm-wide recycling programs for the collection of paper, metals, glass, and corrugated materials.
All of 21GCTT's offices utilize sensor-controlled lighting that automatically shuts off lights when spaces are unoccupied. The firm's office equipment is Energy Star-rated and we are implementing additional power-saving policies designed to reduce overall energy consumption.
Firm wide, we continue to take measurable strides towards reducing paper waste through expanded use of e-mail, duplex copying and printing, and document scanning. We have also transitioned to recycled content paper for the substantial majority of our printing.
Choice of Vendors
21GCTT's choice of vendors is influenced by each business's sustainability practices. For example, we look to commercial printers and paper products suppliers to provide materials made from recycled content, and the transportation service providers we use have begun replacing the cars in their fleets with fuel efficient "Green" vehicles.
