Business Roundtable Sustainability Report 2012
At Altec, we are committed to sustainable solutions and continuous improvement. This commitment to sustainability is reflected throughout our company — in the products we build, the facilities in which we build them and in the way we do business. For more than 80 years, Altec has maintained strong values focused on our customers and associates, and we believe it is crucial to protect our shared environment.
As a company, we make conscious business decisions that meet the needs of the present, without compromising the future. We consistently strive to contribute to a healthier environment by keeping sustainability at the forefront of engineering and research, production and manufacturing processes, and all other aspects of our business.
Altec is the industry leader for sustainability efforts and is dedicated to listening and creating solutions. That’s why we acknowledge the tremendous challenges and opportunities our customers face and aspire to responsibly care for the environment and the communities in which we operate. Altec’s allegiance is evident in the development of numerous sustainability initiatives:
- The Industry’s First Green-Focused Facility. Located in Dixon, CA, Altec products are manufactured in a plant that features state-of-the-art sustainable construction that exceeds Title 24 energy and lighting codes.
- Meeting Customer Needs. Our Green Fleet product line decreases fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, while lowering noise pollution. In partnership with the Department of energy, electric Partners Research Institute, CALSTART hybrid Truck Users Forum and others, we offer a range of hybrid/electric and job-site energy management systems, along with recycled lightweight materials and alternative fuels.
- Facilities and Processes. each Altec facility has established procedures and environmental management programs and actively engages in recycling steel, copper and aluminum, as well as consumer recyclables. The installation of powder coat and e-coat paint systems has substantially reduced solid waste volume and air emissions, and energy-efficient lighting has replaced traditional lighting in all facilities.
By creating products and implementing sustainability initiatives and manufacturing processes to reduce our environmental footprint and build a healthier environment, Altec has established a sound environmental protection approach. We support sustainability throughout our products’ life cycles and strive to generate environmental stewardship solutions that contribute to sustainable change and economic growth.
