Continuing to track and improve its ecological footprint will help Scotch Corporation stay competitive and save money through increased efficiency.
Dallas (PRWEB) December 29, 2014
Scotch Corporation, a manufacturer of home-cleaning solutions, has completed its voluntary disclosure of greenhouse gas emissions for the fourth consecutive year. Scotch Corporation selected EarthPeople Media, a Dallas-based sustainability communications and consulting firm, to calculate greenhouse gas emissions. The company reports emissions and environmental progress to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) in response to Walmart’s continuing efforts to drive sustainability through its supply chain.
As a participant in this process, Scotch Corporation is maintaining its long-term commitment to evaluate operations with the goal of conserving resources across all areas including facilities, transportation, paper use, product sourcing, supplier relations, product marketing, and water use.
Scotch Corporation first committed to disclosing its progress to the CDP on an annual basis in 2011 following an executive-level decision to voluntarily comply with the Walmart Sustainability Supplier Assessment, a process for helping suppliers establish and track sustainability goals.
“We are taking these actions as a step toward greater transparency and leadership," said Jacqueline Siegel for Scotch Corporation. "This process also represents a growth opportunity for our company.”
“We are delighted that Scotch has selected EarthPeople for a fourth year in a row to assist with such an important task. I am impressed with Scotch Corporation’s integrity in upholding its decision to voluntarily report emissions annually,” said Anna Clark, president of EarthPeople Media. “Continuing to track and improve its ecological footprint will help Scotch Corporation stay competitive and save money through increased efficiency.”
An example of increased efficiencies was the decision to evaluate freight hauling to make routes more efficient. This improvement also reduced the use of fossil fuels while decreasing emissions and the company’s overall freight expense. Such changes will also have a positive impact on air quality, as Dallas County is classified by the EPA as a region that is in “Serious Nonattainment” for air pollution, particularly ozone, a greenhouse gas that is the product of motor vehicle exhaust and industrial emissions.
