Eclipse Awards Highlights Company's Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Efforts

August 21, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Vancouver, BC Eclipse Awards is known for beautifully handcrafted recognition awards, responsive customer service and reliability, but the company is also a recognized leader in local social responsibility and global sustainability efforts. In their commitment to become carbon neutral, the company has implemented a variety of initiatives from employee training to energy efficient equipment. Commitment to environmental sustainability and social responsibility are at the core of Eclipse Awards' values.

"We believe that our role is to consistently deliver on the promises that we make to our clients, and in doing so, make decisions that respect the environment and our community, that use resources efficiently, that minimize waste and that strive for simplicity over complexity," said Toby Barazzuol, president of Eclipse Awards. "Recognition awards are the focus of our business, yet how we treat the environment, the way we contribute to our community, and the health and happiness of our team are all equally important considerations."

To reduce the company's carbon footprint, Eclipse Awards is targeting a 20 percent reduction in CO2 by 2013 from 2007 levels. In order to achieve this, the recognition awards company created and adhered to a five-year action plan that identifies some opportunities for the company to reduce its carbon footprint. Among the initial programs was an effort to renovate an unused derelict building into a "living, green building," by installing energy efficient toilets, skylights for natural lighting, open air ventilation and more. Eclipse Awards also installed a green roof with a garden to moderate the temperature, create space for staff to enjoy, and to support local biodiversity.

Today, Eclipse Awards continues to solve the day-to-day challenges that make up the journey towards sustainability. This recognition awards company views sustainability not as a goal, but as an ongoing process that commits every aspect of the business and each team member.
