Environmental Stewardship -- A Company You Can Feel Good About Doing Business With
In June, Dalsin Industries Arizona was recognized as the state’s first recipient of a United States Green Business Council (USGBC) Zero Waste Certification. Certification is based on USGBC guidelines to use less water and energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Certification requires that more than 90% of waste is diverted from landfills and incinerators. In Dalsin’s evaluation, the agency found that 93% of the plant's waste is recycled, reclaimed, resold, or composted.
Dalsin’s corporate commitment to Zero Waste principles and Arizona’s commitment to attracting sustainably-focused businesses is a marriage that benefits every citizen of the state. “Phoenix is recognized as a center of innovation and new directions in research and development," says Christine Mackay, director, Phoenix Community and Economic Development. "What Dalsin has accomplished with its Zero Waste Certification provides a model for other industries and businesses to increase sustainability efforts." As of June 2017, only six manufacturing facilities in the nation received certification. In 2016, there were only four recipients. Dalsin is proud to set the bar higher in Arizona, the state chosen for its expansion in 2012 by the privately-owned Minnesota-based company.
“Championing the best use of Arizona’s resources exemplifies environmental stewardship on our part,” says Keith Diekmann, vice president of technical operations at Dalsin Industries. “It proves that ethical and sustainable practices are achievable in manufacturing.” And Zero Waste means less profit-waste. The company reports total recycled commodities yielded a savings of $44,683 between April 2016 and April 2017. Adhering to Zero Waste principles takes more than corporate determination. Dalsin employees have also shown their dedication to the environment. "In creating solutions around waste,” says Stephanie Barger, director, Green Business Certification Inc. Zero Waste program, “they've found new ways to address problems using the materials that are generated at the facility." She emphasizes how important it is to engage the workforce because many people feel like it's a culture shift. "You need to invest in helping your team understand the impact they are making by embracing Zero Waste policies and principles, and Dalsin has done that.” In July, the company was also recognized as a city of Phoenix Green Business Leader.
