The Monroe, NC company already had established green initiatives prior to joining the GBB. These included the installation of energy efficient light bulbs in all areas of its facility, the reduction of packaging waste, implementation of a recycling program for plastic and cardboard, and the perfection of a “just in time” method of manufacturing in order to reduce as much manufacturing and product waste as possible.
“We at Greiner Bio One decided to become a green business because we understand the importance of our social and environmental responsibility,”
Greiner chose the GBB certification, Farone says, because they understood the importance of being green certified by a well-known and trusted company. The GBB is the nation’s fastest-growing, independent third-party green business certification program.
“We wanted our customers and potential customers to know that our green certification is legitimately certified to solidify in their minds the commitment we have made to reducing our carbon footprint and helping the environment,”
Farone says that, moving forward, the “family” at Greiner is excited to be taking steps to become a more green organization in the future.
“We are not only using this as a tool to help the environment but also help ourselves to build trust, admiration and teamwork between ourselves and our customers,” says Farone. “A sincere effort to help others and the world can build strong relationships between coworkers and also between our company and those around us, and we are looking forward to forging these relationships and working together to provide quality products and services with an environmentally conscious message.”
