As the importance of sustainability and environmental awareness grows, Triumvirate Environmental received the Green Star award for its dedication to hazardous waste removal and innovations in sustainability.
“On behalf of Triumvirate Environmental, I’m thrilled to accept this award,” said John McQuillan, CEO of Triumvirate Environmental. “From our day-to-day operations and efforts to minimize our clients’ waste at all job sites, to bigger recycling initiatives like our Red2Green program, Triumvirate puts a lot of effort into improving sustainability practices for its clients.”
Triumvirate Environmental currently diverts 20% of all its clients waste away from incineration and landfills and saves clients hundreds of thousands of dollars through these tactics each year. In addition, Triumvirate recently began offering a regulated medical waste disposal alternative that allows for cost effective treatment, recycling and repurposing of regulated medical waste into useful products. Triumvirate also hosts a number of client events and employee activities centered around sustainability.
“We understand that trying to minimize waste can be complex, time consuming, and may seem near impossible,” said Doug Youngen, COO at Triumvirate Environmental. “With that said, waste minimization can help companies reach sustainability goals, improve its reputation and save money so naturally, it’s a big focus for us at Triumvirate.”
For these reasons, ELM has chosen Triumvirate Environmental to be the recipient of its Green Star award this year.
“Triumvirate Environmental has been a long term industry leader in reducing, recycling and removing hazardous waste material from the work place and we commend both their innovation and transparency.” said George Bachrach, ELM President.
ELM presented its “Green Star” award to Triumvirate at its Fall Reception on Nov. 17th at the corporate headquarters of Blue Cross Blue Shield/MA at the Prudential Center, 101 Huntington Ave. Boston, MA
