The Green Workplace Challenge is a yearlong competition for businesses, nonprofits, municipalities, and universities to track and measure improvements in energy, water, waste, and transportation. Over 100 organizations in and around southwestern Pennsylvania signed up for the challenge, which began in June 2013 and ended on May 31, 2014. Participants completed a total of 1,668 actions, contributing to a more sustainable southwestern Pennsylvania.
DMI Companies is extremely proud to announce that it won the Medium Business category of the Green Workplace Challenge. DMI Companies’ performance can be attributed to a few key facets of the organization’s sustainability focus. Energy reduction has always been a significant focus for the organization. Regularly scheduled energy audits help the organization identify and tackle areas of high energy consumption, while a strong employee engagement program helps to impart energy, water and waste reduction activities in its employees. It is through these engagement activities that the organization’s employees learn how they can reduce their impact on the environment and live a more sustainable life, both at work and at home. The organization’s sustainability goals would not have been achieved without the overwhelming effort and participation of its employees. Thank you to everyone who participated and helped DMI Companies to win this prestigious award.
