As an environmentally conscious company, GRM is doing its part to both preserve energy and safeguard the environment. GRM's commitment to Going Green extends to trucks, emissions, destruction, facilities, and really, everything we do.
Records management, after all, expends a great deal of energy, and is therefore, full of potential for realizing conservation benefits. Studies have revealed that most of the flow of energy in buildings is related to the flow of information—communications, authorizations, processes, collaborations, distributions, reports and so on. As Information Management, experts, we, at GRM are always looking to do more with less, to deliver outstanding results in ways that are sustainable, cost-effective and friendly to the planet as well as your business environment.
Making a Difference
Current GRM Sustainability Initiative efforts include:
- Environmentally friendly destruction; paper is shredded, baled and sent to a paper mill where it is pulped and completely recycled.
- 100% recyclable corrugated containers.
- Environmentally friendly electronic customer billing.
- Web-based solutions such as GRM’s proprietary eAccess™ inventory control software and The Online Record Center which supports automated, paperless processes.
- Energy-conserving automatic lighting timers at all facilities.
