Focus on Environmental Responsibility

By Yale
November 13, 2012

Environmental sustainability is one of the most critical issues faced by our generation. Our choices – whether at home or at work – impact the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and the land we enjoy. Our world is not only becoming more interconnected through economics, communications and transportation, but is also growing environmentally interdependent.

Just as nations have begun to take responsibility for environmental sustainability, many industries in the business sector have begun to do the same.

Within the material handling industry, there are numerous opportunities to positively impact our environment. Our industry provides the equipment that enables the optimum flow of goods that is essential to a vibrant economy. To the extent that we can achieve this while improving air quality, reducing energy consumption, reducing waste, increasing recycling and increasing safety, we contribute positively to environmental sustainability.
