Bay Area Staffing Firm Recongized for being Eco-friendly
CV Partners of San Francisco Reaches Platinum Status for Green Business Practices
The staffing firm is recognized by GBB for its outstanding commitment to conserving the environment and for adopting principles and practices that demonstrate the ability to operate in a green manner.
The GBB provides national, third-party green business certifications for businesses that strive to reach sustainability, save money and improve the environment. CV Partners has done just that, by implementing more than 95 green initiatives.
CV Partners, along with its subsidiaries (RDP Clinical Outsourcing, CVPartners in Technology, HC Partners, CV Partners Executive Search, R&D Partners and Andrews & Cole Consulting), collectively strive to preserve and improve the environment. All offices have implemented recycling programs and are in the process of going paperless. The company also sources recycled products whenever possible.
"It is through individual and collective efforts that we believe our employees make a difference. Going green through the GBB has created an environment of continuous improvement on our existing practices, enabled us to use the resources provided by GBB to further our education and understanding of environmental impact, and to implement new practices both now and in the future," says Kent Gray, co-founder and COO of CV Partners.
With regards to benefits the company has seen since implementing its green certification and reaching platinum status, Kent says that company travel time as been cut in half by implementing on-line meetings and demonstrations.
"Through our efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of company travel, and travel directly related to providing services to our clients, we've been able to cut our travel times and expenses more than in half." says Gray. "The results are cost-savings we pass onto our clients. Overall, we've saved ourselves and our clients tens of thousands of dollars."
"GBB is proud to recognize CV Partners' contribution to making the environment a healthier place for its customers, employees and community," says Marcos J. Cordero, LEED AP and CEO of GBB. "The added benefits of green certifications are cost-savings, increased ROI and increased marketing opportunities that companies receive when implementing green practices."
