Denver, Colo (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
Swisslog, a leading provider of automated materials transport and medication management solutions for hospitals, today announced the purchase of two years of renewable energy credits for its Denver office and manufacturing facility. With this action, Swisslog’s Denver facility will receive all of its electrical energy from renewable, green sources.
Swisslog has a long history of concern for the environment and for the communities where it operates. Beginning in the 1990’s, the company received recognition for cleaning and treating its waste water and reducing emissions from its manufacturing operations. In the early 2000’s, the company redesigned many of its electronic and electrical products to be compliant with new environmental standards related to heavy-metals. In 2010, the company began a program of investment in its manufacturing and office facilities to reduce its electrical and water consumption. To date, the company has reduced electrical consumption by 20% and water usage by 60%. The company was recognized by Xcel Energy as an energy efficiency partner, placing in the top 100 companies in the state of Colorado.
The company anticipates achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the US Green Building Council by the end of 2012.
