Sustainability

It’s all about leaving the world better than we found it

Using our resources to enhance the communities in which we live is fundamental to our core values here at Border States. We are committed to environmental stewardship, focusing on the interests of our customers, employee-owners and our communities in which we live.

For us, keeping the planet bright green and blue means working with manufacturer partners that create products in ways that have minimal impacts on our communities. It means we sell energy-efficient products like LED lighting and controls, and we provide solutions like job trailers, vending and kitting that drive sustainable practices for our customers. It also means we continuously stay on the forefront of innovative new products that will minimize our customers’ environmental impact.

Vision for the future

We will continue to focus on the basics of reducing, reusing and recycling to foster safe and environmentally sound operations. Going forward, we will continuously work to improve our approach in addressing our daily impact on the world. To ensure we are making our organization and the environment better in every action, every day, our activities will focus on these five points:

  1. Energy reduction
  2. Fuel reduction
  3. Recycling
  4. Education
  5. Oversight

By working to lessen our collective impact on the environment, we will deliver on the promise to improve our world, live our culture of caring and do our part to pass on a better world to the next generation.
