SEG Systems’ Commitment to Sustainability
While there is room for improvement, America and Manufacturing has come a long way in its recycling efforts. Recycling over the last few decades compared to present day has grown from 6% to 34%. That has a lot to do with great organizations like Recycling Coalition and America Recycles Day organization but it also has a lot to do with all of you too.
We know that consumers today demand to work with more environmentally responsible companies, and we feel the same way. That is why we partner with and buy from environmentally friendly vendors too. We have also taken that one step further by not only buying recycled materials but recycling those materials once again.
To date, we have recycled more than 390,975 pounds of aluminum with Custom Recycles. Did you know that recycling aluminum saves over 95% of the energy used to manufacture new aluminum products. In addition to conserving energy, recycling aluminum reduces pollution and conserves natural resources. We also recycle 100% of our used cardboard, and paper products utilizing a dedicated dumpster that is recycled weekly.
We also make it easier to recycle at the office by providing every employee reusable water tumbler and coffee mug, placing water refill stations and coffee stations throughout the office and shop and source environmentally friendly uniforms and clothing.
