Screen Solutions Inc, the first to offer the environmentally-friendly Plissé retractable screen to the North American market, further demonstrates its commitment to the environment this week by balancing the carbon emissions produced by all operations.
By becoming Carbon Neutral, Screen Solutions Inc is aiming to mitigate carbon dioxide emissions - the most common greenhouse gas - caused by its use of energy, shipment of its Plissé retractable screens for doors and windows, all incoming shipments of supplies and materials, as well as all employee commuting. These emissions have been cited as a primary contributor in increasing the Earth’s temperature and impacting global climate change.
“Partnering with TerraPass to offset the carbon emissions of our company further demonstrates our commitment to environmental responsibility and aligns with Screen Solutions Inc’s core values and mission to do our part to preserve the world’s natural resources,” says Douglas J. Bennett, the Screen Guy and CEO, Screen Solutions Inc.
Screen Solutions Inc, the exclusive North American retailer of Plissé retractable screen doors and windows, is committed to both operating in an environmentally friendly way as well as selling a product that is a green choice for homes and businesses.
Every time an individual or organization uses electricity to power their operation or a truck to deliver their goods carbon dioxide emissions are released into the atmosphere. Because carbon dioxide is the known leading cause of global climate change, Screen Solutions Inc - through their partnership with TerraPass - is offsetting their emissions by funding clean energy, farm power, landfill gas capture and abandoned coal mine methane capture.
Plissé retractable door and window screens are the premier green choice. Plissé screens are produced with long-lasting, recyclable aluminum frames and painted using a dry powder coating process that releases almost no volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere, recycling all packing material received into packing for outbound shipping and recycling all scrap material generated in the assembly of their retractable screens.
Screen Solutions Inc is the only retractable screen door supplier in the United States that goes to these lengths to provide a more environmentally friendly product. And now, thanks to Terra Pass, they can report that their entire operation is also Carbon Balanced.
Screen Use Reduces Energy Consumption
The use of any screen can reduce dependence on air conditioning, which can lessen electrical use as much as, or more than, 2717 KWH. (More detailed information available in the article on Screen Solutions Inc’s website, Screen Use & Air Conditioning: http://www.plissescreen.com/2010/08/10/screen-use-air-conditioning/). Energy consumption is further reduced because retractable screens, being less susceptible to damage and weathering, require less frequent replacement.
